About Us Events Getting Involved Stilwell Community Park Stilwell Commerce Connection Community Opportunity  Stilwell Community Plan    




The Stilwell Community Organization is a non-profit organization devoted to the betterment of the Stilwell, Kansas community.  A focus of the organization is to help foster a community spirit that makes Stilwell a wonderful place to live and raise a family.




The community-wide trick-or-treating event on October 25, 2014 will be held in the East parking lot at Stilwell Elementary School. Our goal is to FILL the school’s parking lot with decorated trunks for kids to safely “trunk-or-treat” from!  We ask all participants who will be decorating their trunks to please bring enough candy for at least 250 kids.  If your child is going to trunk-or-treat please consider signing up your vehicle!!  By participating you will be guaranteed a parking spot and the joy of knowing you are supporting our local children and community.   

Decorating vehicle trunks begin at 5:30pm

Trunk or treating begins at 6:30pm

Listen for the car horn blast to start the event!

(Please do not let your child start before the horn has sounded)

The Stilwell United Methodist Church will be serving FREE Hot Dogs, apples and Bottled Water from 6:15 to 6:45pm in the parking lot!!

Trophies will be judged
