Items still needed for EP time capsule

Eagle Point’s Centennial year is coming to a close. The last official event for the 100th anniversary is tentatively scheduled on Friday, Dec. 16 . That will be when the time capsule will be lowered into the ground at Centennial Plaza. It will be sealed until 2036, which will be the 125th birthday of Eagle Point.

There is room for many more items. If you have items that could be copied, that can be done and you can retain your original document. This is an opportunity to share history with a future generation.  If you have questions about a potential donation, please call Dena at city hall, 541-826-4212, ext. 106 or Nancy at the Independent, 541-826-7700.

Below is a list of items scheduled to go into the capsule at this point. But please look around and think what you may have that would be of great interest 25 years from now. We would like a cell phone or two, an old camera or so. Current phone, is another thought. What about medical data, gasoline prices, there really are a number of items that will amuse or explain lifestyle in 2011 or in 1911.
