In celebration of the 100th anniversary of Thomasville’s “Welcome Center for Business,” the Thomasville-Thomas County Chamber of Commerce announced plans for a Centennial Time Capsule that will celebrate life in Thomasville and Thomas County as it is known today. Community members are invited to contribute “messages to the future” to be preserved in the time capsule. The time capsule is scheduled to be buried in front of the Chamber of Commerce building on South Broad Street for 100 years and opened in 2121.
People of all ages who live in, work in, or feel a connection to this community are encouraged to write a message to the Thomasville and Thomas County citizens of the year 2121. These messages might include information on your life, what you like about living in Thomasville, memories of the community, or predictions of the future of Thomasville and Thomas County. Anyone writing a message to the future is encouraged to “Imagine Thomasville” as they see it in 100 years.
Submissions to the centennial time capsule can be made as an individual, on behalf of a business, or on behalf of organizations like nonprofits and churches.
“Thomasville’s citizens and businesses have been making history for nearly two centuries. By contributing to this centennial time capsule, you have the opportunity to make history yourself,” said Louis Carter, chamber intern and time capsule coordinator.
Complete details on the submission process, including simple questions to guide your message writing, are available at www.thomasvillechamber.com/time-capsule
“We are excited to celebrate this historic milestone and give the people of Thomasville and Thomas County a way to connect with the future of our community,” said Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Andrea Collins.
Contributions to the time capsule will be primarily limited to written messages to the Thomasville citizens of 2121. The chamber asks that any other items are not brought to the chamber, as they cannot be included in the time capsule without prior approval.
Messages can be mailed to:
Thomasville-Thomas County Chamber of Commerce
Attn: Time Capsule
401 S. Broad St. Thomasville, GA 31792
