4-H Cloverbud Record Book

4-H Cloverbud members are encouraged to complete a Coverbud Record Book. This exercise helps young 4-H members to process what they have learned, remember the fun they experienced as part of the 4-H club in the past year, and to share their thoughts and feelings with a tangible result. Their completed record book also provides the 4-H Cloverbuds a sense of accomplishment.

4-H Cloverbud members are expected to complete the book themselves. Entries may be a combination of words and drawings. Submission to the 4-H office is not required.

4H Re-Enrollment Update for 2021
Posted 12/15/2020

Due to the unfortunate consequences of COVID-19 over the past 8 months, and the inability to carry out 2020 4-H Programming as we normally would have, the Cornell Cooperative Extension Board of Directors voted to waive the 2021 4-H Enrollment Fee for any youth/family that was a paid, enrolled member in 2020. For those individuals/families/clubs that can, in lieu of paying enrollment, the board encourages 4-H members/clubs to do an “act of kindness”.. donating to items to a food pantry, donating coats to a coat drive, donating to a local charity etc. Any new individual/family enrolling in 4-H for 2021, will be asked to pay the enrollment fee. In addition, any returning members that already paid for their 2021 enrollments will be refunded the enrollment fee via check. EXTENDED DUE DATE: Enrollment paperwork is due by January 1, 2021. Enrollments must be submitted to the 4-H Office to participate in any 4-H function. After January 1st, only enrolled 4-H members/volunteers will receive correspondence and mailings from the 4-H Office. Please visit our website if you need a copy of enrollment forms.
