History:

The citizens of the Kearns township pushed and pushed state representatives and Salt Lake County to build a Senior Center in Kearns.  Senator Eddie P. Mayne, his wife Senator Karen Mayne, senior citizens of Kearns and Salt Lake County Aging and Adult Services collaborated together and ground was broken in 1995 for the new building on 4851 West and 4715 South.  The 10,000 square foot building opened it's doors on July 23rd 1996 with rooms for fitness classes, arts classes, reading, music, dining and entertainment.  A few years later an extension was added for a library, computer lab, multipurpose room and more office space.  In 2008 the Kearns Senior Center changed it's name to the Eddie P. Mayne Kearns Senior Center in honor of the late State Senator Eddie P. Mayne  who was a strong advocate to get the Center built.

In 2014 the Center achieved National Accreditation.  This prestigious national certificate puts the Eddie P. Mayne Kearns Senior Center on the list of more than 120 senior centers who meet the standards developed by National Institute of Senior Centers (NISC).  These are centers that are held up as models for others to follow.  Completing the accreditation process showed our Advisory Committee, staff, members and community leaders that our senior center met the highest national standards.  As a new generation looks to redefine retirement, the Eddie P. Mayne Kearns Senior Center is prepared to reflect a more empowered vision of aging.   Today the Center continues to serve as a second home to many of the members.  The friendly, welcoming environment has helped the Center become one of the busiest within Salt Lake County.
