Submitted by Mary Kay Munson

For one month beginning late June 25, nine youth and an adult leader representing Norway 4H will be hosted by Kansas 4-H families. They will be welcomed at two locations, Johnson County and Wichita, to accommodate host families for pick up and return to their Washington, D. C. flights. While with families the Norwegians will do what their host families are doing and participate in local 4-H activities while sharing the culture of Norway and their 4H program. They return to arrival airport cities on July 18 for very early flights the next morning. Host families, their 4-H units, and students they plan to host are:
