The Project will recognize 50 individuals who have made significant contributions to the community and abroad.
Individuals will be acknowledged through a two-part program that involves the creation of booklets (paper and online versions) and a website.
The program will feature 25 local citizens who in the past, have contributed considerably to the betterment of the Sault Ste. Marie and area community, and who are no longer active or have passed away.
Another 25 persons who have grown up in the area and have made a significant name for themselves elsewhere in the world will also be acknowledged.
