Senior Community Center
The Nevada Senior Community Center (NSCC) is committed to enhancing the recreational, educational and healthy opportunities to the diverse group of aging adults in the Nevada area. This commitment promotes an independent and active lifestyle while enriching, celebrating and honoring life. The NSCC is organized to engage in activities supporting older adults, and no part of its net earnings will benefit any director or individual.
The Nevada Senior Community Center Board is responsible for making recommendations to the City Council regarding policies for control and maintenance of the building, fees and charges for the use of the building, rules and regulations for the use of the facility, and programs and activities to enhance the lives of Nevada’s seniors. Nevada Senior Community Center Board Members may be contacted through City Hall, 1209 6th Street Nevada IA 50201.
NSCC meets as needed at City Hall.

Renting the Senior Community Center
The Senior Center is available to be used by Nevada Seniors each weekday from 9-4. The Senior Center volunteers have organized activities such as: men’s and women’s coffee times, Bingo, card tournaments, a monthly noon potluck with a short program, and occasional day trips around Iowa. RSVP from Ames helps with transportation to various appointments and other activities of interest to seniors.
The Nevada Senior Community Center may be rented by the general public on nights and weekends. It has a full kitchen and adequate table seating for 80 people. A generous amount of parking is available with a handicap ramp to the south.
