Concord time capsule buried for another 50 years: What committee members hope 2065 learns about 2015

CONCORD - Saturday, local residents sent a message to the future -- hoping to provide a snapshot of 2015 for city residents in 2065.

A time capsule, unearthed this summer after 50 years, was buried again on Saturday for another 50 years, this time with the artifacts from 2015 that will hopefully amaze and impress in 2065.

"A little thumbnail view of who we are today and what was important to us and how we are trying to build the future," city council member Byron Champlin described the new time capsule. "It is hard for us to know what will be important to the people in 50 years from now ... but we kind of tried to give them a glimpse of who we are now and how we lived."

At the ceremony where the newest time capsule was buried, community members were able to write messages on note cards and even the back of the cement cover to tell future residents what life was like in 2015.

The Concord Historical Society's Time Capsule Committee received over 1,000 suggestions for what should go in the new time capsule. They didn't reveal everything that was included but did say they put a smart phone, CDs, Legos and even a DVD created by Concord TV featuring many of Concord's notable citizens. Many who attended weren't sure if they would be here in 50 years, but some of young people involved with the Boys and Girls Club said they would try to be.

“I hope to be here, I’m not sure if I will be but I will try my hardest,” said one youngster.
