Bangor City Council unveils Time Capsule 

Bangor is celebrating its 175th birthday this year.As part of that the mayor and city councilors unveiled a special Paul Bunyan citizen award program, and a time capsule.The capsule was made by the father of Bangor’s mayor, Gerald M. Palmer.Palmer used oak trees from his farm in Hermon, and hand milled and crafted the box.It’s 3 feet wide, 2 feet deep, and a foot high.Councilors want Bangor residents to donate items to put in to the time capsule.”Bangor citizens of all ages are encouraged to submit articles for possible inclusion in the time capsule, which will be sealed and stored in a vault at city hall, later this spring, June.”>Historian Dick Shaw says the entries should be focused on Bangor, and should be small since space is limited.The capsule will remain sealed until the year 2034, when Bangor turns 200.For more information about the time capsule, you can contact Bangor City Hall at 992-4200.
