    The Capsule is a beautiful monument designed and donated by Charlestown Monument Company.
    “I want to thank Jeff Grayson, he has done an incredible job in designing this capsule that will be a great symbol of the community spirit we have in Charlestown. This monument will be in Greenway Park for the next 50 years as a reminder of this wonderful year-long celebration of Charlestown’s Bicentennial birthday,” stated Charlestown Mayor Bob Hall.
    There has been video taken of the city, video of the residents at Founders Day, items from Charlestown’s centennial and sesquicentennial, pictures on disk of all the events this year (including the hurricane) and many more items. Now the city is calling on all the citizens of Charlestown who would like to put something in the time capsule to bring it to City Hall to be included in this historic capsule.
