    Resilient Payne County: (Non-Profit/501-C3)  

    Resilient Payne County (RPC) is an organization of volunteers, professionals, educators, business owners, agency personnel, policymakers and parents who are passionate about preventing childhood adversity and building resilience. The resilience movement began on April 4, 2017 when approximately 100 plus viewed the Documentary Resilience: The Biology of Stress & Science of Hope sponsored by seven hope-based non-profit agencies including United Way of Payne County and OSU Center for Family Resilience.  The initial organizational meeting was in June 2017 with seventy community volunteers.  We became the non-profit RPC in July 2019. Our goal is to share information, exchange ideas, learn and work collaboratively across our county to raise awareness about adverse childhood experience and develop solutions that support trauma-responsive and resilience-building practices in our county. We want to increase the capacity to create a compassionate and resilient county where all children and families thrive.  We have a number of committees that community volunteers serve including Policy, Health, Education, Law Enforcement/Judicial, Youth, Helping Hands and Early Childhood.  More information please see our website www.resilientpaynecounty.org .  

    Board MembersDr. Carolynn MacAllister, President; Sheri Carter President-Elect; Lowell Barto, Treasurer; Faith Sarver, Secretary; Denise Weaver; Terry Carpenter; Martha Higgins; Justin Hoenshell; Kelsey Proctor; Kelli Rader; Missy Sorrentino; Kira Frisby; Caryl Talley; Wendy Taylor; Cathy Walker; Dr. Gay Washington

    Background:

    To be a trauma informed community, a community  needs to collaborate with all sectors of our community - counseling centers, schools, policy makers, police, non-profits, judicial, education, health professionals, business and community groups.  To move from a trauma-affected community to a resilient, healing and healthy community where children and families can thrive takes a culture change. RPC knew we had to do it in grassroots, community-oriented way. 

    Building community resilience in Payne County, Oklahoma and America where children are exposed to a wide range of adverse childhood experiences – including abuse, neglect, domestic violence, drug/alcohol addiction, mental illness or parental divorce but also includes adverse community environments, such as lack of opportunity, limited economic mobility, the associated effects of poverty- joblessness and homelessness.  Together - adverse childhood experiences and adverse community environments are the “Pair of ACEs.” Here in Ok and Payne County where 22 percent of children have experienced 4 or more ACEs,  we need all community members in Payne County to be aware of how each person in the community can make a difference.  

    Lucas Grounds State Farm:  

    Lucas Grounds State Farm was established in March of 2015.  Our entire team is rooted here in Stillwater and we pride ourselves in each member being involved in this community we call home.

    Old Settlers Day 2020

    The Perkins Community Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors has voted to officially cancel Old Settlers Day 2020.  

    This is not a decision that was made lightly. The Board has worked tirelessly on alternative solutions.  Old Settlers Day has been a tradition for many many years (this would've been its 97th year), and the Chamber of Commerce looks forward each year to providing this favorite community event.  

    But, with uncertainty involving COVID-19, the lack of a suitable alternative date (September 26th was no longer an option), the unavailability of many groups to participate in the parade, and many other contributing factors, the Board feels like it would be best to cancel the event this year, and focus our efforts on OSD 2021.

    With decades of experience in the industry and continued education every year we are a name you can trust. Whether you need a new system installed or just need a repair, we’re there for you.

    Perkins Drug:

    Since 1977, Perkins Drug has been a fixture in the community. Originally founded by Calvin Anthony, and later owned by Steve Willingham and now Steve Myers… Perkins Drug has always strived to offer “friendly hometown service”.

    Perkins Drug offers a full service pharmacy that includes short wait times, a drive thru window, extensive inventory, competitive pricing, and free delivery in the Perkins area. In addition, we also offer immunizations (flu, pneumonia, shingles and Tdap), and a text service to notify you know when your prescriptions are ready. Our newest program, known as medsync, allows us to synchronize all of a patient’s maintenance medications to be filled on the same day and picked up at a scheduled time.

    Since its inception, the owners of Perkins Drug have always held the same business philosophy… know your customers and treat them like they are family. For over 40 years, we have stayed true to that core value, even though the world of pharmacy has changed drastically over time. At Perkins Drug you can expect all of the services offered at the large chain pharmacies, but delivered in a much more personal, caring manner.
