CANADA DAY: Time capsule to be opened at Sevenoaks Shopping Centre

Artificats sealed and buried 25 years ago

On Canada Day, Sevenoaks Shopping Centre is slated to open a time capsule that was buried 25 years ago.

The time capsule was buried in 1992 to celebrate the 100th day of the 100th year since the District of Matsqui was founded.

Matsqui merged with the District of Abbotsford in 1995 to become the new City of Abbotsford.

The capsule is slated to be opened July 1 on Canada’s 150th birthday.

A look back at the artifacts that were buried and sealed 25 years ago will take place at 10 a.m. at Sevenoaks in the front parking lot across from Chatters.

The public is invited to drop by starting at 9 a.m. for treats, crafts and face painting, followed by the big reveal.

“We’re looking forward to seeing what interesting items were selected and then buried from 25 years ago – capturing that time in history,” says Carolyn Smith, Sevenoaks marketing director.

In preparation for the event, members of the Sevenoaks Kids’ Club have been invited to participate in a craft provided by The Reach Gallery Museum.

Once the reveal has taken place on July 1, the Happy Kids’ Club members will help bury a new time capsule for another 25 years, including their personal crafts and memorabilia from the 21st century.
