Muskogee Noon

Lions Club


The Muskogee Noon Lions Club will host its annual Pancake Day from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m. March 5 at the Muskogee Civic Center.

The cost is $5 for all you can eat pancakes, sausage and drinks.

Proceeds benefit sight conservation for those in need of eye exams and glasses, Parkview School, Muskogee County 4-H Club, scholarships for Parkview, Muskogee and Hilldale students, and several other non-profit organizations like Ark of Faith and the Kelly B. Todd Cerebral Palsy and Neuromuscular Center.

Tickets are available from any Noon Lions Club member or at the door. Muskogee Noon Lions Club has been serving the community for 98 years.

Oklahoma Home and Community Education

Oklahoma Home and Community Education will have its monthly meeting at 10 a.m. Tuesday at the OSU Extension building at the fairgrounds. Everyone is welcome. A day trip for the spring will be planned.

Information: OSU office, (918) 686-7200 or Janice Barnett, (918) 482-3902.

Muskogee Area Quilters Guild

Join the Muskogee Area Quilters Guild at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at the First Presbyterian Church as the club welcomes LeAnn Weaver with her program entitled “Breaking Down Barriers: How to Dissect and Rebuild Difficult Blocks.”

The program will detail how to take a very difficult block, look at from another angle, dissect it, and reconstruct into an easier piecing method. This will take the mystery out of a quilt that you really wanted to make but couldn’t figure out how with the skills that you have.

The club meets every second Thursday.

Daughters of the American Revolution

The Muskogee Indian Territory Chapter of Daughters of the American Revolution will meet at 12:30 p.m. in the DAR meeting room in the Lucy Peters Room at Bacone College Campus. Lunch will be served at 12:30 p.m. and the business meeting at 1 p.m. The program will be given by Penny Chastain on literacy.

DAR was founded in 1890 and headquartered in Washington, D.C., and is a non-political volunteer women’s service organization dedicated to promoting patriotism, preserving American history, and securing America’s future through better education for children. Visitors are welcome.

Information: (918) 348-2397.
