PortraitDouglas Thompson

Douglas Thompson, farmer, municipal councillor and community builder, was born at Boharm, March 10, 1913.

After completing his education he worked as a grain buyer for Ogilvieís from 1934 to 1942. Returning to farm full time on the family farm near Vantage he immediately became deeply involved in local organizations and later assumed provincial responsibilities.

He was elected councillor and later reeve of the R.M. of Lake Johnston. He became a member of the local school board, telephone company, Wheat Pool committee and of the Pioneer Lodge board. He served as a 4-H leader for 25 years and was in demand for his judging demonstrations for 4-H clubs and schools. He was active in the Assiniboia Agricultural Society for 38 years and was president for six.

As a delegate to the Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities he was placed on the board of Saskatchewan Municipal Hail Association. In 1964 he was elected president of Municipal Hail.

His involvement with 4-H Clubs resulted in his election to the provincial 4-H executive and in 1961-62 he served as president. Doug received medals from Queen Elizabeth recognizing his service in both municipal and 4-H work.

A breeder and exhibitor of purebred Shorthorns Doug served on the board of the Saskatchewan Shorthorn Association. He also was elected a director of the Saskatchewan Stock Growers Association.

In recognition of his work both locally and provincially Doug was made an honorary life member of the Saskatchewan Agricultural Societies Association in 1976.
