Time to go down in history
YOU can be a major player in Coffs Harbour’s future right now.
A time capsule project now in full swing is part of our 150th birthday celebrations marking Coffs Harbour’s gazettal in 1861.
“Imagine your family’s excitement when the time capsule is opened in 2047 and you have made a contribution,” said organiser Nan Cowling.
“Everyone should contribute to the 150th birthday time capsule with the things which have shaped your life.
“Be it family, business, sport or community service, they are all important. Community organisations should document their history for the future.
“Photos will be welcomed as they will be converted on to memory sticks.”
Mrs Cowling says you can contribute in any format but if it is not by email or on a memory stick it needs to be delivered earlier than the October 1 deadline to allow time for it to be converted.
Selected contributions will be published in a book.
The time capsule project incorporates the entire local government area.
Contributions can be dropped into the office of Coffs Harbour MP Andrew Fraser in Park Avenue or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mrs Cowling and her husband, Les, will accept contributions or answer questions at the Harbourside Markets on September 18.
