Clerk-Recorder Hugh Nguyen will be celebrating the three-year anniversary of the opening of his department’s North County Branch Office in Anaheim. The office opened in March of 2019 and has grown busier day by day in serving the needs of residents from north Orange County. The office will be decorated for the occasion and there will be light refreshments and snacks starting at 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Tuesday, March 1, 2022.
