Officials brought items to place in the time capsule that included official documents related to their roll in city governance, letters to their future predecessors, and letters to their children.

Community members were invited to include small personal items. WJCT producer Sherry Spearman, who took the photos posted above, included her station ID badge, while her son Chase put his Boy Scout Troop 182 neckerchief in the capsule.

The capsule will be opened and it's contents displayed in 2064.
