HANOVER — The anticipated unveiling of the time capsule, which had been buried in Hanover Township on September 11, 1993, was set to coincide with Hanover Township Day Saturday, September 9.

Excitement filled the air as people eagerly anticipated the memories held within from thirty years ago.

Jim Coiley, Chairperson of the Recreation Commission, emphasized the need to avoid a situation reminiscent of Geraldo Rivera’s infamous 1986 televised event when he opened Al Capone’s vault, only to find it empty. “We wanted to ensure that there was no ‘Geraldo Rivera opening the empty Al Capone vault’ incident,” Coiley explained.

To guarantee everything was in proper condition, the Department of Public Works unearthed the time capsule prior to Hanover Township Day.

Unfortunately, upon retrieval, it became evident that the capsule had suffered noticeable damage. Consequently, the decision was made to have the Department of Public Works open it.

Regrettably, much to everyone’s dismay, a significant portion of the capsule’s contents had deteriorated into mush due to water damage and mold.

Among the few recognizable items were an unidentified tee shirt, a cap, and what remained of a yearbook.
