On February 7, 2009, the City of Inglewood will culminate its year-long Centennial Celebration with the installation of a time capsule to be opened in 2033. The 2033 time capsule will be buried at Inglewood City Hall – South Mall, One Manchester Boulevard at 3:00 p.m.
Various items will be placed in the capsule to commemorate the 100 year history of the City of Inglewood. The items will include information and artifacts about Inglewood today. Twenty-five years from now, these items will be priceless treasures to future generations.
On February 14, 2008, the City began its year-long celebration with the unveiling of two historic time capsules – one moved from the original City Hall building and a new capsule that had been placed in 1973 as part of the dedication of the existing City Hall building. Many historical items from long ago were found in the two capsules.
“We believe this is a very fitting way to end our Centennial Celebration,” said Lynette Lewis, chairperson for the City’s Centennial Planning Committee. “In 25 years, we want our residents and visitors to the City to get a glimpse of where we were as a city in 2008. I’m sure there will be tremendous growth in our City as well as in our country.”
The event is open and free to the public. All are invited to attend. For additional information, contact the City’s Centennial Office at (310) 412-8750.
