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.
