Grande Prairie Regional College has resealed their time capsule for another 25 years.
To mark the school’s 50th anniversary, a time capsule from 1992 was opened.
“Time capsules are a way of sort of sealing where we’re at now. And with the letters of the future that went in, that’s peoples hopes and dreams. It’s kind of good to come back and look at where we were, where we hope to be going and where we ended up,” said Carol-Lee Eckhardt, Honourary Chairwoman of the time capsule.
Some of the items put in this time were updated GPRC Wolves sports uniforms, a USB stick and the day care program, which is celebrating 40 years, submitted a mini time capsule of their own.
“When the time capsule went in 25 years ago, we weren’t really using the internet very much at all. There were no cell phones, I mean there were cell phones, but they were big clunky things,” Eckhardt said. “They weren’t [like] smart phones that we have today. You can pretty much get all the information you need about anything in your hands.”
The time capsule will next be opened in 2042 as part of GPRC’s 75th anniversary celebrations.
