STILLWATER, Okla. — Payne County is set to host multiple events for Easter weekend.

The Pawnee Lion’s Club will host its annual Easter egg hunt Saturday at the Pawnee Bill Ranch at 10 a.m.

According to a press release, the event almost didn’t occur this year. However, the Pawnee Community Chamber of Commerce put out a call for help. Financial support came from Armstrong Bank, First National Bank, The Music Shop and several individuals to ensure the 83-year-old tradition would continue.

Six age groups will be available for children to participate in Saturday. However, the Pawnee Chamber is soliciting volunteers who may be able to assist in preparing signs, supervising and coordinating the event or even hiding the eggs at 8 a.m. that day. To volunteer, call the Pawnee Chamber at 762-2108 or email

The Perkins Lion’s Club is also preparing to host an Easter egg hunt at 2 p.m. Sunday at Territorial Plaza north of Perkins. More than 4,000 eggs will be hidden for the children to find.

In Stillwater, Calvary Assembly of God, 2315 E. McElroy, will host a breakfast at 8:30 a.m. Sunday. Food will consist of eggs, bacon and biscuits and gravy. The church will host an Easter service in an outside tent at 10:30 a.m. After the service, an Easter egg hunt will also be held. Attendees will have the chance to take Easter portraits that day with the price being the cost of the print.

If your church or organization is hosting activities this Easter weekend, submit information to by Friday at 5 p.m. The events will be included on in a list format Friday evening.
