Deadline extended for time capsule letters
The deadline has been extended to Dec. 15 to turn in “Letters to the Future” for the Hempstead County, Ark., Bicentennial Time Capsule.
“A booth will also be set up during the Dec. 15 celebration to complete your “Letter to the Future.” To celebrate the 200th anniversary of the formation of Hempstead County, Ark., the Hempstead County Bicentennial Committee is offering an opportunity for you to send a one-page ‘Letter to the Future’ on a provided form. These will be placed in the Time Capsule for future generations to see 50 years from now in 2068 and look back on what Hempstead County life was like in the year 2018,” spokesman Josh Williams said.
People and organizations are encouraged to write anything they would like people in 2068 to know. Every citizen of the county can turn in one sheet of paper. The standard letter form can be downloaded online at Hempstead200.com or picked up at the HopeHempstead County Chamber of Commerce.
Each community in the county is asked to donate some artifacts or items representing their communities that will also go in the time capsule. Contact your local mayor for more information.
The Hempstead County Bicentennial Committee seeks to promote events and celebrations around this significant year for Hempstead County.
