NORTH SAANICH — A time capsule, created to help mark the District of North Saanich’s 50th anniversary this year, will be on display at the Mary Winspear Centre starting May 1 and last a week.

A 135-pound steel capsule was built by fifth generation North Saanich business, Fraser and Company. The public is invited to have a look at it while it’s on display. Contributions to it are still being accepted for the next couple months. Contact Coralie Breen at the District of North Saanich at cbreen@northsaanich.ca for more information.

The contributions will go on display at the Sidney Museum in June and the capsule itself will be put into place for a 50-year rest during North Saanich Jubilee celebrations in July.
