Rossland time capsule project completed

Time capsule captures Rossland today at the Library.

Last September, the City of Rossland wanted to find a way to capture all that defines life in Rossland today. In a ceremony held at the Rossland Public Library on Friday September 6, 2013, a time capsule was buried.

Project leader, Ryan McGill recently put the finishing touches on the time capsule that was buried at a sealing ceremony last September as a part of Golden City Days.

“The time capsule sealing rock along with the addition of the plaque could not be added at the time due to the cold weather last fall,” McGill stated.

The capsule, marking bolder and plaque are located on the landscaped grounds of the Rossland Public Library, centre for learning and discovery.

The city of Rossland helped install the plaque which reads:

“Rossland Time Capsule


Celebrated in Design, Cherished and Remembered in Preservation, and anticipated in discovery.”
