At the stroke of noon Thursday, May 7, it’s Lid’s Off! time for the 1965 time capsule’s rustic wooden outer box. The Concord Historical Society invites all to be part of the action in the lobby at Merrimack County Savings Bank, 89 N. Main St.
Community members will enjoy the first glimpse at the bulletproof 1965 time capsule nestled inside the outer wooden box. The newly revealed (but still sealed) 1965 time capsule will remain on display at Merrimack County Savings Bank following the Lid’s Off! event. The time capsule will be opened live for all to see during the Time Capsule Opening event at Concord City Auditorium on Sunday, June 7. There will be an ice cream social starting at 5:30 p.m., while the time capsule opening commences at 6:30 p.m.

In the meantime, the Concord Historical Society wants to hear your guesses at what’s in the 1965 time capsule, and suggestions for what should be included in the 2015 time capsule to be buried Nov. 7.
Stop by Merrimack County Savings Bank to fill out a suggestion form, or email ideas to TimeCapsule@concordhistoricalsociety.org by May 15.
