Final Call for Items to be placed in Township Time Capsule

AnniveraryLogoBuilding

 

From pictures of a Buck Thorn tree to a flash drive with You Tube videos, from newspaper articles to a catalog of current fashions, New Trier Township is looking for items that represent life in New Trier Township in 2011. The Township is filling a time capsule to mark the culmination of its 160th anniversary on April 12, 2011 at the Annual Town Meeting. "We’re looking for things that will be interesting and fun to look back on in 40 years."
 
"Our goal is to preserve the salient features of history and give residents and business in the Township the opportunity to be a voice in the future," noted New Trier Township Clerk Jerome Hoynes. "It doesn't have to be things that are important,’ "he added. "We are looking for items that represent modern day living in the Township and those who live here."

Residents can drop off their items at the Township office located at 739 Elm Street in Winnetka, which is open Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.    They may also bring items to the Annual Town meeting on April 12th beginning at 7:00 p.m. at the North Shore Senior Center, A.C. Nielsen Jr. Campus, located at 161 Northfield Road in Northfield.

Hoynes noted that unlike many time capsules that are buried, the Township’s time capsule will be sealed and placed above ground in the vault  located in the Township’s historic building. It will stay sealed for 40 years, until the Township’s bi-centennial celebration in 2050.
