The ESTAHAKEE Chapter takes its name from the Seminole word meaning "Beautiful Scene" and was originally organized in Boca Raton, Florida, on May 8, 1961. Beginning with only 25 Charter Members, our Chapter has grown to a membership of nearly 150.

Meetings of our award-winning chapter are held on the second Monday of each month, October through May.
