For now, the public can visit the contents of the time capsule, which are on display at Cedar Hill Rec. until Jan. 22. Cards are available for the public to sign, with lots of room to describe what life is like in 2017 (or early 2018), to share with those who open the capsule.

The accumulated results of Saanich 150 committee’s summer efforts are currently on display at Cedar Hill, 17 poster boards signed by hundreds of Saanichites. The exhibit is called #Grateful4Saanich and was done in tandem with the time capsule launch.
