Brandon, MB (CKLQ) - For the next week, many 4-H members will serve as tour guides to their counterparts as they explore the City of Brandon.

That's because every summer, 4-H groups across the country partake in a club to club exchange with another club elsewhere in the country.

This year, the Brandon group is exchanging with a group from Ormstown and Howick, Quebec. 

The two week exchange program will start in one club's area, before shifting back to the club's home for the second week.

For this particular two groups, they started in Quebec last week, before making their way to Brandon on Wednesday.

In Quebec the two groups did their project at the Dunn Memorial Scout Camp.

On Friday, the project in Brandon was helping out at the Helping Hands soup kitchen, before going to the Manitoba Ag Building and packaging hygiene kits for the Brandon Bear Clan.

The packages included encouraging messages for anyone that would get them.

One member form Quebec has enjoyed her stay, but noticed one big difference in this province.

"It's a lot flatter here," joked Ella Bryson. "You can see for miles."

The groups will be in Brandon until Wednesday.
