Drumheller residents have been celebrating Canada's big year with many events, but the Drumheller Heritage, Arts and Culture committee have just announced their new celebration.
To recognize our country's special year, the committee is creating a time capsule to commemorate everything that represents Canada 150.
"We thought it would be really fun for the next celebration, whenever that may be, that people could open the time capsule and see what life was like for us for Canada's 150. We want to put things in there that represent Drumheller and Canada in 2017, so 50 plus years from now people could have a blast from the past," stated Rhian Russell, chair member of the Drumheller Heritage, Arts and Culture committee.
They are looking for some ideas that can be assembled into the time capsule such as birth or wedding announcements, events happening in our town, pictures or new technology.
"Whatever people are thinking, however small, just send in a submission and we'll chip through everything to see what sounds good. Nothing is too small to include," Russell mentioned.
The items are restricted by size.
"I'm not 100 per cent on what the dimensions are going to be, but obviously were not really going to be able to put large items in there, but maybe even photographs of items," Russell concluded.
