History / Biographical
Jenny Phillips was born and raised in Kitchener, Ontario. She is a direct descendent of Samuel Bricker, one of three pioneer Mennonite men who bought the Beasley Tract for the German Company from Lancaster Pennsylvania. All her immediate relatives were Mennonite farmers. Jenny attended Shepherd Public School and later Eastwood and Kitchener Collegiates. December 23, 1963 during a blizzard the family of nine moved to London, Ontario. Jenny’s father’s new job was to begin January, 1964. When he went to the office there was a Sherriff’s notice on the door. The firm was out of business. When the school year was complete the family moved to St. Thomas. Jenny dropped out of school and worked as a waitress and as a factory worker. While working at Paul’s Food Bar, Jenny learned about Alma College’s bursary program. She applied and in August of 1965 she enrolled in Alma’s grade twelve class and paid for her room, board, tuition and books working as Head Girl in the Barbara Heck Dining Hall. Jenny graduated Class of ’66. Bell Telephone offered Jenny a position as a long distance operator. The shifts varied day by day and week by week. After an illness, Jenny accepted work with regular hours as hostess in the Executive Dining Room of Ford Motor, Talbotville. Jenny married Dave Phillips in 1968 in the Alma College Chapel. They have four children and 9 grandkids. The family lived in Dutton. In 1990, Jenny & Dave realized their dream. They opened Village Crier Gallery. Jenny has always doodled but never had much spare time to indulge in the arts. David encouraged and supported her dreams. They now live in an apartment above the gallery, a studio was added upstairs.

History / Biographical
The Elgin Federation of Agriculture (EFA), a county affiliate of the Ontario Federation of Agriculture (OFA), is said to have been established either in the 1930s or 1944. The EFA’s stated purpose is to be an advocate for and supporter of Elgin County farmers’ welfare. The federation also generates awareness of issues in agriculture and the food system and provides farmers with important information about the farming community. The EFA is member-based and governed by a board of directors with many regional affiliates.
EFA meetings were held monthly with the occasional meeting scheduled in between. At meetings, problems were presented and discusses, motions were voted on, and resolutions were forwarded to the OFA. The sheer size of Elgin County meant that travel factored heavily into attendance and, especially in the beginning, was a sacrifice that denoted the dedication of directors and other members to club functions.
One of the EFA’s greatest successes was the establishment of The Co-operators insurance group in St. Thomas in the late 1940s. As one of many projects or organizations initiated and realized by the EFA, The Co-operators was an attempt to care for area farmers who did not feel adequately covered traditional insurers.
Scope and Content

History / Biographical
The Elgin County 4-H Association is a regional division of 4-H Ontario. They are responsible for running selected clubs throughout the county, and each club focuses on completing a specific project over the course of at least 12 hours of instruction. Originally, clubs were focused on either homemaking or agriculture, but in modern times the clubs have expanded to include other projects, such as finances and job searches, in order to foster the personal development and responsibility of youth. At its height, Elgin County 4-H offered many clubs throughout the county, often with regional markers to distinguish them from identically-named clubs in other parts of the county (such as the West Elgin Dairy Club and the East Elgin Dairy Club), but reduced membership in modern times lead to consolidation into single, county-wide clubs. The 4-H Program arose from agricultural roots. The idea began in the United States: in 1901, President Orwell of the Farmer’s Institute of Macoupin County, Missouri, offered a bag of seed corn to local boys with the hope of encouraging youth leadership in agriculture. 500 boys signed up for that project with the intention of displaying their produce at the 1903 St. Louis Fair. The project drew praise from educators and agricultural leaders alike The idea came to Canada in 1913, when the Department of Agriculture donated one dozen poultry eggs, potatoes, and seed to the youth of Roland, Manitoba, with the intent of having them plant, raise, and grow them over many months. During this time they would be guided by leaders who would teach them the best ways for raising their livestock and crops. This established the basic framework used by 4-H today, which is the completion of a project by youth of a certain age, under the supervision of a leader. These were originally dubbed Boys’ and Girls’ Clubs, and were headed by the Department of Agriculture. The first recognized club in Ontario was founded by Stanley Knapp of Waterloo in 1915, and spread from there. In Elgin County, the first recorded clubs date to 1935, alongside the newly founded Homemaking division of the Boys’ and Girls’ Clubs. Both Homemaking and Agriculture were well represented in Elgin County. In 1952, the Boys’ and Girls’ Clubs were renamed to 4-H Canada (head, heart, hands, and health), and under this new moniker, the focus began to shift from goal-oriented pursuits, such as completion of projects, to the personal development of its’ members. Starting 1985, the Homemaking and Agricultural divisions, previously separate, merged to become one entity, with John R. Lyle as president. In 1988, 4-H Ontario separated from the provincial Ministry of Agriculture, Food, and Rural Affairs to become an independent organization.
