The South Frontenac Time Capsule Committee is still accepting submissions to be included in a time capsule that will be buried at Centennial Park in Harrowsmith and will be unearthed in 50 years, to mark Canada 200.

Submissions have been open for some time, but the committee has not received the number of items for consideration that they had been hoping for. They are therefore asking the community one more time for submissions to the project

They are looking to community clubs and organisations for submissions, which could include: posters, brochures, lake association AGM agendas, photos, deck of cards from card groups, autographed sheet music from jam sessions, art from the kids at play groups, and more.

Other ideas for submissions include letters from long time/ multi-generational residents of the township, letters to future family members, magazines/ books, sports memorabilia, t-shirts, or photos. Another idea is aerial photos of properties, villages, schools, stores, churches, etc. (think of how different it may look in 50 years!)

These are just a few ideas of some possible submissions! Limitations include batteries, organic material, and some size requirements. If submitted items are not suitable, all attempts will be made to return them to the sender.

Submissions can be dropped off at the township office in Sydenham (4432 George St.), or if you are unable to get to the office please get in touch with Amanda Pantrey and pick-up can be arranged.
