Leadership Okeechobee 2022 class is diligently working on their class project. In order to raise money for this project, they will be selling tickets to a pulled pork meal with all the fixings by the renowned Pit Master Sheriff Noel Stephen. You know it’s gonna be good! These meals will be available on Friday, Oct. 7. If you purchase five or more meals, they can be delivered in town or picked up in the Butterfly park. Tickets are available at the chamber and the library.
