    New Boston - 16 September 2014: This evening promptly at 6:30pm at the Whipple Free Library, New Boston's ceremony to place a time capsule within the ground began. How did this project come about? One resident of New Boston has the story. Laura Robbins of New Boston simply states with a grande smile, "I'm just a committee member that asked a question one day; are we doing a time capsule, and they said, there ya go Laura". And so it began. During the ceremony at the Whipple Free Libriary, Robbins outlined the contents of the box to spectators. Robbins said some Items included 250th commemorative items and mentioned that a couple of DVD's were included, however no DVD player and hopefully the Historical Society will have one, Robbins said. The crowd chuckled at this for good reason as the capsule is scheduled to be opened in the year 2063. Also included were some items such as a 250th T Shirt, event listings, a mug, pictures of the town, town reports, a 250th grange cookbook, the 250th 4th of July program and a calendar. After the ceremony and installation of the time capsule by Road Agent, Dick Parusse and help from a couple of local residents, guest were invited to the Russell Community Room in the Library for refreshments and review of the monument to be installed later in the week. Guest mingled and reviewed some historical books and spoke of times past in town. The time capsule box was provided by the French and Rising Funeral Home of Goffstown. The Bird Bath monument was provided by Swenson Granite Works of Amherst. Catering was provided by local residents, Robert and Holli Barbarian. All in all, a wonderful event of times past brought forward to today and yet in the future for those who will open the capsule in the Spring of 2063.
