Celebrations for Canada 150 are continuing with the creation of a time capsule to commemorate life in 2017.

The Drumheller Heritage, Arts and Culture committee announced the idea of the time capsule awhile ago and so far they have received a few suggestions.

"We would be more than happy to have whatever you think we should have in the time capsule," said Sharel Shoff with Drumheller Town Council.

"We have had couple suggestions for this time capsule," noted Shoff. "We put in a fidget spinner, which is different and we put in a poster of Springfest at the East Coulee School Museum."

The time capsule will be sunk into the ground during Alberta Culture Days in the fall.

Shoff added that there are some restrictions on how large the items can be that are being placed in the time capsule.

"If you have things you still want to put in the time capsule then go to our website and check it out," added Shoff.

Anyone with a suggestion of an item for the time capsule can follow this link.
