Newtown Time Capsule Dedication

November 14, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

A time capsule is being dedicated on Tuesday, November 14th at 1:00 PM at Phase One of Steeple View on South State Street. The time capsule contains memorabilia from the Newtown Historic Association, the Borough and interested parties, including a letter to future Newtown residents from 10-year-old Cymberly Tsai of Goodnoe Elementary school. It will be opened in one hundred years!

So, come out and join the Council Rock football players who are assisting with the placement of the marker and hear Mayor, Corky Swartz’s proclamation commemorating the event. Bring your young ones, who, like Cymberly Tsai, we hope will be present for the opening of the capsule in 2117!
