The Wilson County Sesquicentennial Committee invites letters from county residents to be included in a time capsule to be buried Sept. 25, as the county’s 150th birthday celebration draws to a close.

Anyone can write a letter for inclusion. Children can write to their future selves, school superintendents and mayors are invited to write to their future counterparts, parents can write to their children, and so on.

Letters written in 1960 and interred with the county’s time capsule that year will be opened and read in September. During the ceremony, the old time capsule will be dug up and replaced by a new one, which will remain in the ground for the next 50 years.

“... we are notifying the mayors, councils, commissioners, and superintendents, etc. ... that a letter to their counterparts would be a thought ... or their families, or just anyone they wish to receive or read it,” Sesquicentennial Committee member LaJuana Newnam-Leus said.

In addition to letters from area ministers, school and elected officials, and others, items in the Centennial Capsule include centennial memorabilia such as bumper stickers and a program poster; copies of the Floresville Chronicle-Journal Centennial issues; “Wilson County Centennial Notes,” and more.

Sesquicentennial Committee members are LaJuana Newnam-Leus, 830-393-2166; Shirley and John Grammer, 830-947-3176; Maurine Liles, 830-393-4959; and Gene Maeckel, 830-484-2536.
