100th Anniversary Time Capsule - To be opened in 2047
Twenty-five years from now, what would you like the residents of New Milford to know about our community? What objects would represent the meaningful moments, news events and trends of 2022?
The 100th Anniversary Planning Committee is gathering items for a time capsule to be opened when the borough observes its 125th anniversary in 2047. We’re hoping to include artifacts such as personal letters, programs and memorabilia from special events, school yearbooks, team rosters and line-up cards, and photographs. The time capsule will be buried Dec. 4th during the Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony.
We've created a template that can be used to write a letter to the future. You can download the form here. For additional information on how to submit items for the time capsule, click here.
