    Youth Exchangee from Finland becomes a shearer

    Katariina Saikku, who was hosted by our Club has tried her hand at sheep shearing. She was at Russell and Janet Paech's property at Walla Walla during shearing time. The experience was unique in that after Russell had shorn most of one of his sheep he stopped and had Katariina have a brief turn at completing the long blow on the sheep. She was amazed at being involved and said that it was an experience that she would remember forever. Katariina (called Kate) proved to be a credit to the Youth Exchange program and following her stay with Lavington attended the International Youth Camp.
