With Merrillville turning 50 years old on December 30, 2021; we will be preparing a Time Capsule that will be on display at the Dean and Barbara White Community Center with instructions to OPEN the capsule in December of 2071 – 50 years from now!
The capsule will be filled with current information about Merrillville, photographs, town meeting notes, agendas, and important ordinances. We’ll also place local newspapers inside as well as info about all of Merrillville’s High Schools Championships and Semi-State runner up accomplishments.
We’ll place $50 in cash, so they can see what ‘our’ currency looked like in real life. Photographs of town employees and we’ll invite Andrean and the Merrillville School Corporation to place programs inside to show what school was like in 2021.
The Ross Township historical society will be invited to place interesting items inside showing the history of our great town. We are open to any ideas YOU may have as to what should go into our town’s time capsule. Please email me your ideas at email@example.com – Rick Bella for the Town of Merrillville
