Dates of existence


As part of the celebration of the International Year of Older Persons in 1999, a committee was formed in Calgary, Alberta for a time capsule project. Senior citizen's groups and homes were contacted and seniors were asked to donate items which would reflect what it means to be an older person in Calgary during 1999. The closing ceremony for the time capsule was held at City Hall on October 1, 1999. It was later transferred to the Glenbow Archives to be restricted for 25 years until after October 1, 2024, at which time the contents will be revealed and made available to the public for research purposes.
