BURRILLVILLE – The deadline for submission of pictures for possible inclusion in an Earth Day time capsule passed this week, and residents submitted a final set of photos to be entered in the contest.
The contest, put on by the Burrillville Earth Day Committee, gave readers a chance to send in a picture of their favorite place in town, with the hope to show those who dig up the capsule in 50 years how the town looked in 2020. Submissions could optionally include how participants thought the same place might look in 50 years.
The time capsule is set to be buried in conjunction with the town’s celebration of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day.
While the future of that event, along with others such as Burrillville’s annual Earth Day clean-up, has not yet been determined, NRI NOW will still offer readers an opportunity to choose the best five pictures to be buried in the capsule on the grounds of the Assembly Theatre. Readers should watch for the chance to vote on their favorite pictures in the upcoming weeks.
Whether buried in a video event that adheres to social distancing requirements, or put off to a later date, the time capsule event will happen at some time in the future, to be announced.
