Time Capsule to Preserve College's Past

DATE: 08-26-2004

Cayuga Community College's 50th-anniversary year will conclude with the closing of a 50-year time capsule. The capsule will house photographs, scrapbooks, publications, and other memorabilia tracing the college's history since its founding in 1953. The capsule, a fire-resistant container measuring 10 inches by 14 inches and designed to safeguard documents, will display a commemorative plaque indicating its date and purpose. Among the items collected for it by the college's library, alumni association, faculty and staff are a clothbound volume of college history, alumni newsletters and a freshman beanie dating from the bobby-sox era. On Friday, September 3, 11 a.m., the time capsule will be embedded in a wall of the James T. Walsh Regional Economic Center on the Auburn campus. The event, with college president Dennis Golladay presiding and refreshments served afterward, will be open to the public.
