FVCC Invites Community to Sealing of Time Capsule

Picture of 2017 Time Capsule
FVCC will seal a time capsule containing college memorabilia from the past 50 years on November 14. The time capsule was fabricated by FVCC Occupational Trades instructor Sam Brown earlier this year and will not be re-opened until the college’s centennial anniversary in 2067.

As FVCC’s 50th anniversary year nears its conclusion, the college will seal a time capsule in preparation for burial at a later date on campus. The time capsule will contain college memorabilia from the past five decades and will not be re-opened until the college celebrates its centennial anniversary in 2067.

The community is invited to view the contents of the time capsule and witness the sealing at a ceremony on November 14 at 5:30 p.m. on the lower level of the Arts and Technology building. There is no charge to attend the ceremony. For those unable to attend the ceremony, the contents of the time capsule will be on display for public viewing in the Arts and Technology building beginning November 13.

FVCC’s Alumni & Friends Fall Social will take place immediately following the time capsule ceremony. All FVCC students, alumni, supporters, friends and family members are invited to attend. Tickets to the social are $25 in advance or $30 at the door. The social includes dinner, a no-host bar, live music by Dan Dubuque and a pie auction to raise money for student scholarships. To purchase tickets to the Alumni & Friends Fall Social or for more information, visit www.fvcc.edu/alumni-social or contact Ben Deremiah at 756-3632 or bderemiah@fvcc.edu.
