2069 Time Capsule will be closed at 10 a.m. Saturday
26 in Central Park.
The time capsule will be opened 50 years from now, in 2069.
Items in the time capsule include yearbooks, rosters from service clubs and lists of employees, souvenirs from Hannibal’s Bicentennial celebration, photographs from the sandbagging efforts and letters.
Seventh-graders wrote letters to the citizens of Hannibal in 2069 and teachers chose the best letter from each homeroom or school. The winners will read their letters at the ceremony.
The class winners from Hannibal Middle School were: Mia Watson, Piper Harvey, Breanna Smith and Zora Reese. The winner from Holy Family School was Prestan Schanbacher. The winner from St. John’s School was Alana Lemon.
The time capsule was donated by Smith Funeral Home.
