RES­I­DENTS at Ama­roo Buck­ley Car­ing Vil­lage waved good­bye to some spe­cial mem­o­ra­bilia and items as they sealed a time cap­sule in the fa­cil­ity's grounds.

AMA­ROO Buck­ley Car­ing Cen­tre res­i­dents have sealed a piece of their his­tory in the fa­cil­ity’s grounds af­ter bury­ing a time cap­sule.

The cap­sule was or­gan­ised two years ago by the cen­tre’s res­i­dent fo­rum com­mit­tee and will be re­opened ex­actly 25 years to the day it was buried: July 15, 2043.

The com­mit­tee wanted to pre­serve the cen­tre’s his­tory and de­cided on a time cap­sule given the fa­cil­ity’s cur­rent re­fur­bish­ments and build­ing ex­ten­sions.

Its con­tents in­clude mem­o­ra­bilia, old pho­tos, craft, news­pa­pers and a USB stick with life sto­ries of res­i­dents.

Com­mit­tee mem­ber Kath­leen McNeil praised the hard work of staff and res­i­dents for mak­ing the project a re­al­ity.

“Thanks to all the res­i­dents, staff and vol­un­teers, the time cap­sule has hap­pened and in the en­su­ing 25 years, it will be a legacy to the res­i­dents that lived here,” she said.
