Recognizing the contributions of Frank and Dorothy Lewis

Their Honours Dorothy and Frank LewisDuring his six plus years as Lieutenant Governor, Frank Lewis made his presence felt in every community across the Island, enthusiastically attending events of all kind in his role as Queens Representative. If a community or event asked, he made it his mission to accommodate regardless of kilometres logged or potential for scheduling conflicts.

“This dedication endeared the Lieutenant Governor to communities from one end of the Island to another,” says Bruce Howatt, chairman of a committee working to create the Hon. Frank and Dorothy Lewis Community Strength Fund. The endowment fund will be managed by the Community Foundation of Prince Edward Island.

“For more than 50 years Frank and Dorothy have worked to make Island communities stronger. This fund will help honour their legacy and ensure that community-based projects are supported into the future,” he said.

Dorothy Lewis has been a dedicated volunteer in her community, church, Women’s Institute, Queen Elizabeth Hospital for decades.

“Frank and Dorothy opened the doors of Fanningbank to all Islanders. And Islanders opened their doors to Frank and Dorothy. We think it is very important this contribution is permanently recognized,” says Howatt.
