WALBRIDGE – The centennial committee concluded a year of activities by presenting two time capsules to village council.
The presentation was made after Wednesday’s meeting by centennial committee chairwoman Darlene Limmer.
There are two time capsules. One will be opened in 25 years and the other in 50 years.
Some of the items in the capsules include photos from the 2013 centennial events, newspaper clippings, menus from local restaurants, coins, stamps, letters from Limmer and Mayor Ed Kolanko, and copies of the centennial cookbook and alumni book. There are even two cans of pop.
Limmer also gave a scrapbook to the Walbridge Library. The program, “A Piece of Walbridge History,” will be presented March 5 at 1 p.m. at the library.
Kolanko said the capsules will be sealed, then stored in a fireproof room in the police department.
The committee held several events in 2013 to mark Walbridge’s 100-year anniversary. They included a cookie sale, quilt show, wedding vows renewal ceremony, vintage baseball game and fireworks, and a three-day summer celebration.
