Heritage Week February 20 - 26, 2017

By City Staff

The City of Sarnia and the Sarnia Heritage Committee are celebrating Heritage Week, February 20 – 26, 2017. The Ontario Government has designated the third week in February as Ontario Heritage Week and encourages all Ontarians to celebrate heritage in all its forms (cultural and natural, architectural, archaeological and collections), its diverse traditions and cultural expressions.  

From Tuesday, February 21 to Friday, February 24, during regular office hours, 8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m., a display of historic photos will be on view in the lobby of City Hall.

At Lambton Mall, from Thursday, February 23 until Sunday, February 26, the Sarnia Heritage Committee will again have on display their collection of heritage photos along with some artifacts from the Sarnia Historical Society. Heritage Committee members will be on hand to answer questions about their display and activities. The County Archives and neighbouring communities will also have historical photos on display.

“We are inviting the public to come out, learn, and share their memories about our local history,” states Wayne Wager, Chair, Sarnia Heritage Committee.

The City of Sarnia will also be celebrating Heritage Week through social media by sharing information on a different heritage building or site in Sarnia every day. The heritage sites have been selected from the Sarnia Heritage Committee’s Buildings & Sites Walking Tour, which is available at the following link: www.sarnia.ca/cultural-heritage.
