Coat­i­cook mak­ing time cap­sule for 2114

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS BRIEFS -

This Fri­day, Septem­ber 12th, the Coat­i­cook 150th com­mit­tee, the Har­monie de Coat­i­cook and the So­ci­ete d’his­toire et pat­ri­moine de Coat­i­cook will to­gether write a page in his­tory by bury­ing a time cap­sule that is not to be opened for one hun­dred years, in 2114! For this his­toric oc­ca­sion, the pub­lic is in­vited to also leave their traces for the fu­ture gen­er­a­tions of Coat­i­cook.

The plac­ing of time cap­sules is much more common in the United States than in Canada. A lit­tle bit of ev­ery­thing, in­clud­ing mes­sages, is put in a large steel cap­sule then buried to be dug up at a much later date.

Be­gin­ning at 4:00 pm on Fri­day at Parc Chartier, a pho­tog­ra­pher will be on site to take pho­tos of the par­tic­i­pants. They will then be put into an al­bum and the al­bum will be placed in the time cap­sule along with a book of sig­na­tures of the par­tic­i­pants. Those in­ter­ested can have the photo of them­selves sent to their email ad­dress for a small fee.

For more in­for­ma­tion call 819 849-2721, ext 280, or visit www.coat­i­cook150.ca.
