The postponement of the fireworks at Patriot’s Park on July 4 also delayed the opening of the City of Greenville’s 1990 time capsule, which was dug up in the spring.
The public is invited to the time capsule opening Tuesday at 7 p.m. in the Bradford Community Building. The event will be part of the monthly Bond County Historical Society meeting.
John Coleman, member of the Greenville Bicentennial Time Capsule Committee, said the capsule opening should be an interesting event for local residents. Click below to hear more:
