A time capsule will be installed within the new Harbor Place development, downtown.
Haverhill residents are invited to choose up to five items, ranging from a “Free (Tom) Brady” t-shirt to a photograph of the mayor standing downtown, to be included in a Harbor Place time capsule.
The owners of Harbor Place and Team Haverhill, a non-profit civic organization, have joined for the Harbor Place Time Capsule Project. The dedication ceremony is set for next Wednesday, June 15, 11 a.m., in the Pentucket Bank community room, 35 Merrimack St. As WHAV previously reported, the time capsule is scheduled to be opened in 25 years.
Team Haverhill members met with elementary, middle and high school students to gather a list of suggested items to be placed in the time capsule. Besides resident suggestions, a “Message in a Bottle” from participating Haverhill schools will be placed in the time capsule. These include Tilton second graders in Kerri Alves class, sixth grade students in Maria Godfrey’s Hunking middle school class and Haverhill High School juniors in Jay Fiorentini’s History of Haverhill class.
