Time Capsule Burial Celebrates Bicentennial
The top is now shut on a time capsule not to be open for another 50 years in Pascagoula. State officials, city leaders and residents gathered in Lighthouse Park to celebrate Pascagoula’s own Mississippi Bicentennial. After the ceremony, that time capsule was blessed. It contains various items important to the city in the year 2017. Some of the things put in: newspapers of current events, Mississippi quarters, stamps, city documents, barbies, a pair of solar eclipse glasses and a scroll containing 2500 messages and signatures from current Pascagoula residents. Right now the celebration is continuing with a historical Trolley ride through the city.
