WARWICK — There was a clear blue sky on Saturday, Sept. 23, as more than 100 local residents gathered for a community photo, which will be placed in the 2017 Time Capsule to be opened in 2067.
This past August the unearthing of the 1967 capsule was part of a week-long series of events celebrating the 150th anniversary or Sesquicentennial of the incorporation of the Village of Warwick in August 1867.
The new time capsule will be buried on Saturday, Oct. 14, and a new Board of Trustees for its opening, youngsters today, will be appointed.
The photographer for the new community photo was Kathie Austin of Kathy Austin Photography, who was able to take her photos from a height thanks to a forklift operated by Craig Wadeson of Wadeson's Home Center on Forester Avenue.
Austin, who, assisted by Village Trustee Eileen Paterson, organized the group in a neat square formation, had also taken another community photo in July.
Among the local officials and others participating in the community photo was Mary Demarest, 78, who was in the 1967 community photo.
Since that time she and her late husband, Philip, raised four children and she now boasts having six grandchildren and one great grandchild.
• Anyone who wishes to have a letter in a number 10 envelope included in the new time capsule are encouraged to drop it off at Village Hall, the Buckbee Center, Track 7, Frazzleberries or Ye Olde Warwick Book Shoppe.
