Send your ideas for Campbelltown 2020 time capsule

Residents and community groups can now contribute to a time capsule that will be buried at Glenalvon House as part of the Campbelltown 2020 program.

The time capsule will be buried during a ceremony on Tuesday 1 December in honour of the official 200 year anniversary of the declaration of Campbelltown and will be opened by the community in 100 years.

Residents can submit their ideas for items which capture this period in Campbelltown’s history to be included in the time capsule at Council’s website.

Community groups can also submit an Expression of Interest if they would like to contribute an item to the Time Capsule.

“Every period in history is full of unique experiences and moments which tell a story about the community and people who lived during that time,” Mayor George Brticevic said.

“This time capsule will be a celebration of Campbelltown today and tell our story to people living here 100 years from now,” Cr Brticevic said.

“Our diverse community has many stories to tell and I encourage everyone to submit their ideas for what could be included in the time capsule to be truly representative of Campbelltown today,” he said.

The Campbelltown 2020 program recognises 200 years since Campbelltown was declared a township and the more than 60,000 years of Aboriginal history in the area.
