Clover-Joyed Fall Recognition Event Was Amazing!
On Saturday October 8, 2022 more than 125 people attended our Fall Clover-Joyed Recognition Event and Family Fun Day!
The fun started with pumpkin decorating, Club Spirit table decorating, free popcorn, and the arrival of the chili! We had 8 Club Chili Cook-Off entries - all so tasty! Families picked pumpkins off the vine at the SCREC Pumpkin U-Pick and found plants to beautify their homes at the MG Plant Sale. But the highlight of the day was the chance to ride the tractor around the farm and learn about all that goes on at SCREC. Congratulations to OABB for the winning chili entry and the Club Spirit table contest! Excellent job to all of the clubs who won pumpkin decorating contest categories! Here are some memories of the day...
Don't Miss Out the Next Time!
Mark your calendars now for the Spring Clover-Joyed Recognition Event and Family Fun day scheduled for Saturday, June 10 at SCREC. More details will follow of course but...sneak peek...there just might be pinatas!!
