UC Time Capsule

A UCN viewer reached out to us regarding a time capsule that was placed at the base of the flagpole in downtown Union City, in 1966. Supposedly, it was to be opened 50 years later. Does anyone have any information regarding when (or if) it might be opened? 

It was placed by the local Boy Scout troop. In fact, the gentleman that contacted us, Lee Grantham, was one of the Boy Scouts helping that day. Lee now lives in Wisconsin, but would like to be present when it is opened.

 

 

 

Union City Public Library will be trying a new program on Saturday, the 23rd, which will be hosted by local artist Shannie Denney. It is a coloring program for adults. It's something that has been growing in popularity over the last couple of years. It's aimed at adults because the designs to be colored (e.g. mandalas) are much more intricate than in a standard coloring book. We plan to do this at least one or two more times this year, and possibly more if the program is well attended.

Call to pre-register or arrive early, as space is limited.
