The Mayor’s NV Commission and the Churchill County Museum Association, will honor Nevada’s sesquicentennial by asking the community to participate in its next project, the placing of a time capsule.
Another project underway is a Then and Now exhibit.
The time capsule will be placed within a permanent outdoor display at the southeast corner of the Churchill County Museum. The ceremony will occur on Oct. 31, the official date of Nevada’s birthday.
Individuals or groups are being asked to place an item in the time capsule that best represents the city of Fallon, Churchill County or Nevada such as a letter, a document, a photo, a sound recording, a video, a small book, or any other item that would not exceed a measurement of 6 inches by 6 inches by 6 inches.
CCMA requests contributions to be submitted to the museum no later than Monday.
For questions, call the director of the Churchill County Museum, Donna Cossette, at 775-423-3677, or Bob Getto at 775-745-0864.
The Then and Now project is to get the Churchill County community involved in thinking about how life has changed during the last 150 years and provide an educational tool for both the young and old. The Then and Now exhibit will be conducted much like a county fair with awards for age groups and special achievements and is open to all Churchill County residents.
For questions call Frank Woodliff III at 775-423-6065 or Kimi Melendy at 775-423-0462.
