Last fall, University YMCA opened a time capsule that had been sealed for 115(!) years to commemorate their 150th anniversary. That is such a crazy time warp, and you can rewatch the opening of the capsule if you missed it previously. As they move forward towards their next milestone, they’re asking for input on what should be included in this capsule. They won’t be opening it until 2073 for their 200th anniversary.

Here’s some more information from their recent newsletter, and watch the opening of the previous capsule below that.

Help us create the next time capsule!

As we look forward to the next 150 years, the Y will be establishing a new Time Capsule, set to be opened in 2073 at the 200th Anniversary of our Association. As we begin to create this piece of history, we would like to include our members as much as possible in determining its purpose, what we hope to impart to future generations, and what its impact might be in 50 years. We invite you to participate in the process by giving us your thoughts and ideas on what should be included, and what messages or values should be imparted. Please take a moment to fill out the brief survey below and give us your thoughts!
