As part of Bundoran Heritage Weekend and the 100 Years of Democracy exhibition, a time capsule will be sealed this Saturday, August 23rd, at Bundoran Community Library.
The idea of the time capsule has been in the works for some time now as part of the project conceived by Magh Ene Historical Society, Bundoran Community Library and Discover Bundoran, and it was decided that the most appropriate time to seal it would be over the heritage weekend celebrations.
Jill Doherty of Bundoran Community Library said that, “while the idea of a time capsule is not something new, it is new for us – so much has happened in Bundoran already in 2014 and we want to use the time capsule to capture the Bundoran of 2014 by way of photographs, videos, documents and other items relevant to the town.
“It will remain on view in the library for 25 years, and be opened on August 23rd, 2039,” Jill said. The time capsule will be on display on a shelf high up in the library.
The ceremony will take place at 12 noon on Saturday, Aug. 23rd, in Bundoran Community Library, with items for inclusion in the time capsule to be presented by various members of the community.
The time capsule will include a jar of sand from Bundoran beach, local newspapers, photo books of Bundoran compiled by the Northwest Photographic club and more.
All are welcome to attend the ceremony. More details about the time capsule and its contents can be found on www.discoverbundoran.com/timecapsule.
