County buries time capsule for reopening in 2067 or 2117
Flagler County celebrated the end of its centennial year with a time capsule burial ceremony in front of the Government Services Building on Dec. 19.
The capsule — which contains photographs, memorabilia and letters — is designed to be unearthed and reopened in 50 or 100 years. It was not actually buried at the ceremony: It has to first be sealed.
U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson also wrote a letter to be included in the capsule.
"I applaud the visionary spirit and dedicated leadership that has resulted in Flagler County becoming a model community in Florida," he wrote. "Henry Flagler, for whom the county is named, would be thrilled with all that the citizens have accomplished."
The Centennial Committee is chaired by Carl Laundrie. Sisco Deen is vice chairman. Members include:
Art Dycke, Elaine Studnicki, Virginia Giaramita, Robbie Creal, Thea Mathen and John Dalton.
