What would you place in a time capsule to be opened in 100 years?

At the Newton-Needham Chamber’s 100th Annual Achievement Breakfast we asked attendees to suggest items that could go in a time capsule to be opened on the Chamber’s 200th anniversary in 2115. Here are some of the many suggestions:

  • Photos of each of our village and town centers
  • Pictures of the Route 128 road work
  • A cell phone or more specifically, an iphone
  • A selfie stick
  • Drone digital footage of the 2015 “Feast of the Falls”
  • A newspaper from the 11/5/2015 (day of the 100th Annual Breakfast)
  • The #1 movie, song and best-selling books from 2015
  • A small piece of Needham’s historic “Blue Tree”
  • Apple Watch
  • The transformation of the new Atrium Center
  • A collection of “memes”
  • A business card from Newton’s “Board of Aldermen” soon to be the “Newton City Council”
  • A flash drive containing the slide show from the chamber’s annual breakfast – showing photos from events throughout the year
  • Video walks through parks and trails in Newton and Needham
  • Police officer uniform
  • Map of Newton and Needham roads
  • Menus from local restaurants
  • The chamber’s current business directory
  • A credit card – or currency generally
  • A traffic cone
  • Soil, water and air samples

We will continue to collect your suggestions at our remaining 2015 events or you can share them on our Facebook page.
