A Unique and Rare Historical Opportunity for your Children…
Join the Delran Historical Society and Town Council along with your children this Saturday April 29 at 11:00 at the Delran Municipal building for the reburial of Delran’s 1980 Centennial Time Capsule.
In 1980 Delran celebrated its 100th anniversary. In honor of this milestone a six-foot iron time capsule was buried at the township municipal building that once stood where the current TD Bank on Chester Avenue resides and set to be opened 100 years later in 2080. A few items placed in the capsule included a current BCTs newspaper, high school yearbook, letters from Delran school students, Brownie Troop 297 letter, phonograph record, photo of township officials, centennial button, and a bottle of a limited edition centennial wine specially made by Antuzzi’s winery that was located in Delran. The time capsule lay undisturbed until 1998 when it had to be unearthed due to the relocation and building of Delran’s new and current municipal building. The time capsule was never reburied and housed with public works over the last 19 years. The Delran Historical Society was compelled to get the time capsule back in the ground and they, along with town council, decided on the reburial ceremony this Saturday, April 29.
This will be an historic moment for you and your children as many of our current school students will be able to witness Saturday’s reburial AND the unearthing of the 100 year old time capsule at Delran’s Bicentennial in 2080…truly a unique and rare historical opportunity for them! Please consider joining us.
