BAYONNE, NJ - City of Bayonne officials, residents, and guests will participate in a ceremony Saturday to close the time capsule that will be shut until 2069, the year the city marks its 200th anniversary.

The event will take place in the gallery on the second floor of the library and begin at 10:00 a.m. 

“A time capsule is a container that holds objects that reflect what is important to the people at a given point in time,” Mayor Jimmy Davis said. “People in the future will open that time capsule to learn what the people of Bayonne thought represented us in 2019.” Davis said he will also place a letter in the time capsule addressed to the person who is mayor in 2069.

The ceremony, part of the official celebrations that have coincided with Bayonne 150, will include songs by the Bee’s Knees and the Honor Choir, two musical groups at Bayonne High School.

“I have enjoyed seeing the submissions to the time capsule and look forward to concluding our Bayonne 150 celebration,” Davis said.
