Officials with the Glendale Chamber of Commerce marked the 100th anniversary of its incorporation, on Sept. 10, 1910, with a time capsule ceremony on Sept. 21.

The ceremony was presided over by Chamber President Rick Lemmo. Both Lemmo and Rich Roche, the chamber's immediate past president, officially kicked off the celebration at the Centennial Gala in June.

The capsule will be buried in Perkins Plaza at a date to be announced. It will be removed in 25 years, precisely on Sept. 21, 2035.

The chamber invited current chamber board members, past chamber presidents, enduring chamber members (businesses such as Forest Lawn Memorial-Parks and the Glendale News-Press, which have been members the longest) and City Council members to place an item in the time capsule — something current that represents a particular business and/or the community.

Items contributed include photographs, brochures, business cards, advertisements, business directories and service club rosters, local bus schedule, a DVD and mug from the Glendale Police Department, a reusable canvas bag, Sept. 21 edition of the News-Press and even a bottle of designer water.


The capsule is a two-cubic-foot cube, provided by Chamber Board Member Marko Swan, owner of Cygnet Stamping. Board Member Scott Drolet, Forest Lawn Memorial-Park, will provide the 800-pound vault in which the capsule is placed. Board member T.J. Denton, Thomas Denton & Co., is providing the plaque for welding to the capsule.

City staff prepared the request and report for City Council's approval of the Chamber's use of city property. City Council unanimously approved the project at its Sept. 14 meeting.
