Okeechobee District has been revamped into something new:  Big Lake District.  This is an exciting time as we move forward into a new perspective on Scouting: the Community.   Each community will now have the opportunity to build up Scouting locally.  Keeping it on a local level, the communities will find it easier to support Scouting's needs as well as for local units to support their communities' needs.

We have gained the communites around the Eastern side of Lake Okeechobee:  Canal Point, Pahokee, and Belle Glade.  These communities have rich soil for Scouting to once again flourish and grow as it once did in the past.
