Community/Senior Center

Located on the corner of Main Street and 1st Avenue North, the Aurora Community/Senior Center was built in 1991 as a multiuse facility for the community. This historic replica of Aurora’s first train depot is recreated in both location and architecture, and has a welcoming presence on Aurora’s Main Street.

It is home to the Aurora Senior Citizens Club, as well as community events, including Pumpkin Fest, Annual Community Meetings, and Local Blood Drives.

The Community Center served as the hub for Aurora’s Centennial, which was held in 2003. At that time, a Pioneer Monument and Memorial Brick patio was constructed to commemorate the event.

Available for Rent!

The Community Center is a popular meeting place for organizations, including All-Slav Club, Slovenian Women, SOAR, Girl Scouts, and Boy Scouts.

The Community Center boasts a full service kitchen, including commercial grade appliances, ample prep space, and table service for 200. An expansive Main Hall is an inviting avenue for birthday and anniversary parties, bridal and baby showers, class reunions, and wedding receptions. The patio area serves well for overflow and outdoor entertaining.
