Time Capsule Letter Writing Session

You’re invited to be a part of Lakeside’s history! From now until August 24, we’re looking for Lakesiders to write letters to be included in the Sesquicentennial Time Capsule, which will be opened 50 years on Lakeside’s 200th Anniversary.

Imagine the joy on your children, grandchildren or your own face reading a letter from the past with hopes and wishes for the future. It’s the perfect opportunity for Lakesiders of all ages to capture a moment in time and get involved in the Sesquicentennial Celebration.

The Lakeside Heritage Society Archives, located at 210 Walnut Ave., will host Time Capsule Letter Writing Sessions from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Tuesdays-Thursdays until August 24. Supplies are provided, and there is no fee or registration required.

Your letter should be on 8.5” x 11” paper, and both the front and back may be used. You may also include a 4” x 6” photo. Limit one photo/letter per individual or family. Please do not fold or seal the letter/photo. A copy of the letter/photo will be kept on file at the Archives and the original placed in the time capsule.

Letters and photos can also be dropped off at the Archives no later than Friday, Aug. 25, 2023, to be included in the time capsule sealing at the Summer Closing Celebration on Sunday, Sept. 3.

The event is finished.
