News Tidbits – Tony Martin (originally of Hawk Junction), was recognized for his tireless efforts in social justice provincially and federally, and specifically in Sault Ste. Marie. His most important project was the Soup Kitchen Community Centre, initially based in the Blessed Sacrament Church basement, before it moved to its current James Street location in 1990. 35 years ago, first meal was served October 29, 1983; averaging 80 to 120 lunches daily, with Sunday night dinners beginning November 4 until late April. Yesterday they named the dining hall after him – Tony Martin Community Hall.
