CloverJoyed 1

Our 2020 Clover-Joyed Fall Recognition Event took place on October 10, 2020 at Hart Park in Orange. 



Turn-out was low due to COVID concerns but youth and adult members received pins, ribbons, and other awards from last program year and adult volunteers were recognized with lanyards and leader pins. Event coordinators from 2020 were also recognized for their contributions to OC 4-H. We love our volunteers!

Watch for more details for the 2021 Clover-Joyed Spring Recognition Event coming on June 19, 2021! You can see info from our previous recognition events below.
