The Auburn Senior Center was created by a group of determined seniors, headed by William “Bill” Burback. Bill felt that seniors needed a place where they could come and keep out of a rocking chair. His dreams inspired all his friends; together they set out to accomplish this goal.
Through lots of determination and commitment they achieved the impossible creating a space at Dewitt Center. The Center doors opened in October of 1980, and for 36 years the Dewitt Center was their home.
In mid-2015 the Center was asked to leave Dewitt Center and was housed in an office building in downtown Auburn until the lease expired on September 30, 2020.
In October 2021 we opened at our new site in North Auburn. Today, Auburn Senior Center has over 800 plus members from three counties: Placer, El Dorado and Nevada. Nearly half are active in daily activities including volunteering at the Center.
