What will Arnprior be like in 2067?
That is the central question Janet Carlile, curator at Arnprior & District Museum, has for anyone wanting to be included in the town’s latest time capsule. The project is part of Canada 150th anniversary celebration and will see a metal meshed box with two plastic tubes crammed with plenty of signs and symbols of life in town during the year 2017.
“It’s a good nostalgic thing to see what things were like 50 years ago,” Carlile said. “It’s showing a place for a short period of time.”
She wants to avoid the clichés many time capsules have and include an interesting twist. Many Grade 6 students from the area have answered a series of questions she posed. (“Most predict they’ll be rich, of course,” she said.) And now it’s time for the adults.
