The Sandwich 375 Committee is very pleased to announce the donation of five thick 17” diameter glass spheres by Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute and Michael Magyar of the Glass Studio of Cape Cod to be used for our 375 Time Capsules. Each time capsule will be buried and designated to be opened on 25-year Sandwich Anniversary Celebrations beginning with our 400th Anniversary in 2039 and ending with the final time capsule being opened in 2139 for Sandwich’s 500th Anniversary!

 

According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, “a time capsule is a container holding historical records or objects representative of current culture that is deposited (as in a cornerstone) for preservation until discovery by some future age.”

SO WHAT SHOULD WE PUT INSIDE OF OUR TIME CAPSULES?

The Sandwich 375 Committee is looking for your suggestions? Newspapers, group pictures or items, school yearbooks, magazines, books, art, sheet music, electronics although they won’t work, small pieces of clothing, what else? If you have some ideas or contributions, please contact us.

SO WHAT SHOULD WE PUT ON THE OUTSIDE OF OUR TIME CAPSULES?

Since the time capsules are made of glass, we can engrave the outside of them which the Magyars have kindly offered to do. The engraving will last over time as each time capsule will be placed in a protective container then lowered into the ground. We are offering engravings of up to 25 letters each as follows:
