We are excited to offer programs, events and activities tailored to Active Adults 55+ which encourage healthy and active living. A membership to the Community Center or the Senior Club is NOT required for the majority of activities and programs. IF membership is required for either, it IS noted with the specific activity or event.

Most of our activities, programs and events are located at the Veterans Memorial Community Center in Community Room 2 (8055 Barbara Ave. E., Inver Grove Heights, 55077).

Learn more about the IGH Senior Club below, which is a membership club with annual fees. Senior Club members enjoy discounts on many programs and events, as well as additional program and event opportunities tailored to members.
