While volunteers build the new Imagination Station, items for a time capsule to be planted at the new play space are being collected. Families are asked to contribute items that will help capture 2018.
One item per family can be dropped off at the time capsule tent at Mulligan’s Hollow. Saturday and Sunday are the last days of the collection.
Items are requested to be no larger than a small tub.
Debbie Friggens, who is overseeing the time capsule, said some items might be fidget spinners and kendamas. She said her son is compiling a list of his favorite things to include in the time capsule.
The Reimagine Project committee plans to include pictures and video of the project coming together as well as a banner signed by all of the volunteers.
Although a time capsule was buried when the original Imagination Station was built nearly 30 years ago, it hasn’t been found, said Amylyn Robbins, a member of the project’s public relations committee.
According to volunteers involved in the first project, some of the items in the 1990 time capsule were cassette tapes, children’s drawings and pink T-shirts the volunteers wore.
Once the new play space is completed, it will be determined where the time capsule will be buried. It will be opened at a date yet to be determined.
