Time Capsule Opening

Press Release 1304-014

Monday, April 15, 2013, 12:00 PM [RELEASE AT WILL]

Just over 50 years ago, a Time Capsule filled with130 thoughtfully-selected items, was buried for the purpose of preserving the history of the Colorado Springs Police Department.

The media is invited to join us as we open this sealed capsule and discover the hidden valuables and interesting stories from decades ago.  Please RSVP to Barbara Miller at 444.7412 if you plan to attend as you will need to arrive early to set up in advance.

Mayor Steve Bach, Police Chief Peter Carey, Retired Police Sergeant Dwight Haverkorn and Craig Coupland {who was present when the capsule was sealed in 1962} will share comments during this event.

This promises to be a fun and exciting event for those in attendance.  Unfortunately, due to limited seating, this is not open to the public.
