A Bedford County family is hosting an Austrian farm girl under the International 4-H Youth Exchange.
It’s turnabout for the McPherson family. Last year, Jaycey McPherson, who is now 19, spent a summer in Finland the guest of a Finnish farm family in northern Finland under the same program.
This year the McPherson family is the host. Rita Koch stayed with them as part of her sojourn in Virginia. Fortunately for the McPhersons, Rita speaks good English.
