Wis. Village: Where’d We Bury That Time Capsule?

KIMBERLY, Wis. (AP) — Kimberly officials plan to commemorate the village’s 100th anniversary by digging up the time capsule the community buried 25 years ago. There’s just one problem: No one knows where it is.

The time capsule held coins, news clippings and a bottle of New Coke in a 2-foot-long piece of white PVC pipe. It was buried near the municipal building in 1985.

However, the time capsule had to be dug up in 1997 when the building complex was remodeled.

Kimberly street commissioner Dave Vander Velden says it’s not clear where — or even if — it was reburied.

The Post-Crescent of Appleton says officials are using a metal-detection device to help them find the wayward time capsule.

    GOOD LUCK IN FOUNDING THE TIME CAPSULE IN TIME OF THE BIG EVENT 100 ANNIVERSARY. GOD WILL BE ON YOUR SIDE HELPING YOU OUT TOWARDS THE RIGHT PATH TO DIG. I CAN’T WAIT TO HEAR WHAT WAS LEFT BEHIND FOR 25 YEARS IN THE GROUND. THIS IS A TRUE GIFT OTHERS LEFT BEHIND AND HOPE THEY WILL COME BACK WHEN THE TIME CAPSULE WILL BE REOPEN AND TELL THEIR STORIES BEHIND THE NEED TO BURIED A CAPSULE IN 1985.
