Donations still sought for Amory’s birthday time capsule
AMORY – Organizers are still looking for items to fill the time capsule in honor of Amory’s 125th birthday. Originally scheduled to be buried Nov. 14, the the ceremony will now be Nov. 26 at 2 p.m.
“We’d still like an old cell phone and empty flash drive nobody’s using and church directories and cookbooks marked from this year, but nothing overly large. Already we’ve got items like a yearbook, an Amory Panthers keychain, a 2012 telephone book and a 2012 calendar, all representative of this year,” said Bo Miller, director of the Amory Regional Museum.
The time capsule, donated by the Gilmore Foundation, is 4 feet tall and 32 inches in diameter. It will be buried on the west side of the museum and reopen in 2087 for Amory’s 200th birthday.
“I’d imagine once people open it in 75 years, they’ll think about how simple life was in 2012. We think life in 1937 was so simple,” Miller said.
Donations can be dropped off with Miller at the museum or with Lorie Bryant at Amory Main Street.
