The “Centennial Celebration Time Capsule” will be sealed on January 31, 2012 and is scheduled to be reopened in the year 2061. The public is invited to submit items for the capsule that will live on as part of the City’s history. Everyone in the Delray Beach community is encouraged to participate including residents, business owners, organizations, schools, community groups and visitors.
