We have always respected the Sarnia Historical Society for preserving the history of Sarnia and reminding the community what we once were. That’s why when they asked us to attend the unveiling of the plaque for the late Cst. Jack Lewis, we eagerly accepted. The Sarnia Historical Society blocked off the North End of Christina Street to show honor for Cst Jack Lewis. The plaque reads:
On this site, on May 23, 1936, Sarnia Police Constable George Edward John (Jack) Lewis courageously gave his life defending the lives and property of the people of Sarnia. He was slain by the notorious gangster Norman (Red) Ryan, becoming this city’s first police line-of-duty death.
Lest we forget
Sarnia Historical Society
It was a rainy day so we took the Sarnia Historical Society’s members and all of its patrons inside our facility and hosted the event indoors. We honor the Sarnia Historical Society and Cst. Jack Lewis on that day for continuously giving back to the Sarnia community. If you are a community organization looking to preserve/improve our community, we share your vision. Reach out to us. We are always looking for ways to serve our community.
