1991 Time Capsule

25 years later the time capsule was opened. It was packed full of interesting stuff, patches, neckerchiefs, VHS tapes, baking soda.  Many of those scouts who contributed to the 1991 time capsule are now leaders in their community, experts in their field, parents of their own scouts.  Most items were preserved in zip lock bags but not all. Thus some cleaning up.

Thanks to Matthew Allensworth for taking care of the time capsule and setting up the display.  Thanks to all the scouts and their commitment to the environment.
