10 students and 2 chaperones from Lachute, Quebec arrived in Kerrobert yesterday as a part of the 4-H Canada Exchange Program. 

They'll be visiting and learning about the praries with those from local 4-H organizations, with members from Kerrobert, Handel, Major and Vibank taking part. 

Local 4-H members already went to Lachute from July 24th to 31st to learn about thier lives, now thier finishing the exchange. 

One of the local 4-H leaders, Marlie Meyer caught up with us to talk about some of the things they'll get up to while in Saskatchewan. 

"We're going to the Bodo Archaeology Dig, the oil field, the Red Neck Games in Major, we're taking them out to Alix, Alberta to the rodeo and we're gonna show them life on the farm here.

The members from Quebec will be here until August 17th.

Meyer talked about what they hope they will learn from the experience. 

"The knowledge about what life in Saskatchewan is about, it's certainly different than their's because their quite treed with little farms and stuff like that."

Only members between the age of 12 and 18 are able to take place in these exchanges. 

"They're quite excited about seeing our way of ranching and stuff like that." Meyer said. 

During their time here, Quebec 4-H members will be accommodated at local members homes.
