About Clovis of Central California
By JoAnne Green

A genuinely American town with a unique community culture affectionately referred to by the locals as the Clovis Way of Life, Clovis is noted for its warm and friendly people, its charming atmosphere, its time-honored and hospitable traditions, its excellent schools. A thriving, safe and clean community, the City of Clovis is well-loved and cherished by both local people and out-of-town visitors. The City of Clovis in Central California is a brilliant blend: It is a vibrant modern town that retains an authentic Western theme. Clovis is a real hidden gem. It is amazing what you'll find in Clovis ̶ and in the surrounding area.
