Families of 4-H'ers in Franklin County in northwest Vermont -- which boasts the largest number of dairy farms in New England -- are playing host 11 to Cattaraugus County 4-H'ers this week.

The seven-day Interstate Exchange gives the local teen-agers an opportunity to learn about the country's top maple syrup producer.

A sightseeing trip to Montreal, 80 miles north, the ski resort at Stowe and an excursion on Lake Champlain also are planned.

Participating in the trip are: Jon Meeder, 18, and Kristy Schumacher, 15, of Little Valley; Shawn Terry, 17, and Leslie Lockwood, 14, of Randolph; Cole Miller, 16, of Kennedy; Jare Ferry Jr., 15, of Perrysburg; Brandon Steinbar, 14, of East Otto; Lana Ragona, 14, of Gowanda; Brian Leising, 14, of South Dayton; Pam Swanson, 13, of East Randolph, and Shannon Turner, 13, of West Valley.

Accompanying the teens will be Judith Ragona of Gowanda and Linda Schumacher of Little Valley.
