The celebrations will culminate in a 1970s-themed event in November.

The James Bay Community Project is kicking off its annual general meeting with a celebration that has been 40 years in the making.

As part of the ongoing celebrations, it will be collecting stories, pictures and memories of people’s involvement to create an archive. The celebrations will culminate in a 1970s-themed event in November.
