TOMS RIVER – The final day for items to be submitted to Toms River Township’s 250th anniversary time capsule is Friday, December 1, 2017.
The Semi-quincentennial Committee is asking the public to submit items for the time capsule. The Committee would like each contributor to include an index card with your name, address, telephone number and a description of the item. Items can be dropped off at Town Hall at 33 Washington Street, Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. in the Clerk’s Office. Similar items will be grouped and a random selection will be made from each group.
Our goal is to preserve the history of Toms River and give residents and businesses in the Township the opportunity to have a voice in the future. Items should be significant to Toms River and be smaller than a fist, such as letters, photos and small mementos. We are also looking for items that represent modern day living in the Township – think selfie stick, iPhone, or flash drive, for example.
A sealing ceremony will take place on Friday, December 8th at 10 am in Town Hall. During that ceremony, the 225th time capsule will be opened. The public is invited to witness the opening and share in memories and refreshments.
