 Livermore Citizens Bury Time Capsules

On Friday, January 14 in the year 2000 citizens of Livermore buried two time capsules at ceremonies held in the downtown area. Festivities began at noon in front of the City Library and culminated in the placement of the Livermore Millennium Time Capsule in its burial spot near the DeAnza monument between the Library and City Hall. Then the Livermore Centennial Time Capsule, which gained national media attention in 1999, was transported from the Millennium ceremony to Portola Park on the Livermore Heritage Guild's 1944 Mack fire truck. After a brief ceremony, it, too, was placed into its burial position for a future generation to uncover.
