On Saturday, September 9, we will celebrate Longview's centennial by presenting the city a 100-year time capsule.
The occasion will be marked by a formal Masonic cornerstone ceremony involving the Grand Lodge of Free & Accepted Masons of Washington and Masons from around the area.
Jon Jacobson of Pacific Stainless Products is creating and donating a super cool, polished stainless steel, laser-engraved time capsule for our time capsule event. It will look great!
Here we are after opening the niche at City Hall, where the 75th anniversary time capsule was placed late in the last millennium. We're taking measurements (again!). Jon's mock-up is behind him. It fits just fine. Now we're working out the design of the plaque that will go on top.
And we need your help!
We have a number of objects already but we'd like your ideas and suggestions. What objects represent Longview's past 100 years? What represents Longview now? What do you think Longview will be like in 100 years?
Let us know! Send us your ideas at the bottom of our time capsule page.
We're going to seal the items in the capsule on Saturday, September 2 - a week before the cornerstone event.
The sealing ceremony is by invitation.
If your donated object is selected, you're invited to help us out and to sign a signature scroll.
