A recent visit from a 4-H youth exchange from Ontario had teens help around the community.

4-H'ers from Russell, Ontario visited our slice of Alberta to engage in working together to help build a community project.

"Every year 4-H Canada does club-to-club exchanges," explained exchange facilitator, Jazmin Lukinuk. "The Drumheller group was part of that exchange and had some kids come from Ontario."

During their visit, the club exchange traveled to Banff and attended the Calgary Stampede.

"During that time we did a community project that was in Morrin with Bucks and Bows," commented 4-H chaperone, Koren McDouglad. "We put sand into the old curling rink so that that association, which has 4-H members in it that do archery, could have a safer environment to do their archery in."

The 4-H members here are heading to Ontario to do a similar project in Ottawa where they will meet up with many of the same 4-H youth members that came here.

"We will be doing a walking tour of Parliament Hill, a ghost tour and walking the canals," mentioned McDouglad.

The Drumheller 4-H'ers leave for Ottawa July 19 and will return July 28.
