You may have noticed the 4-H Outpost got a much needed facelift this year: fresh paint, new ceiling fans, supplies, and more! To better show off these new changes, the Clermont County 4-H Advisory Committee revised the ordering system to improve efficiency and ease of ordering.
Please help us more forward into 2023 by providing feedback about your experience.
