June 2020 marked the 325th anniversary since Gloucester Township’s incorporation in 1695. Unfortunately, we were unable to celebrate last year due to the pandemic; however, we plan to hold a time capsule burial in the fall of this year at the historic Gabreil Daveis Tavern.
Items of significance to the Township will be buried at the tavern to be dug up by future generations. The purpose of the time capsule is to allow Gloucester Township’s heritage to live on for many years to come.
Here in Gloucester Township, we value our community organizations and the impact they have on our hometown. We would like to extend this unique opportunity to organizations in Gloucester Township to submit items deemed significant to be placed in the time capsule that will be buried in September 2021, date to be determined.
Local groups, organizations, and institutions are welcome to submit their items to the Mayor’s Office by August 2nd, 2021, to be unearthed in the year 2070.
If interested, please submit the items of significance including, but not limited to photos, documents, small trophies, etc. All items must fit in a gallon-sized Ziploc bag
In addition to your items, we ask that you also submit a group photo of your organization that includes your organization’s name and the names of those pictured.
We hope your organization will take advantage of this great opportunity and join us at the time capsule burial in September of 2021, date to be determined. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Mayor’s Office at 856-374-3514.
