Rails to Trails Sullivan Renaissance Time Capsule...Contribute Items

Early this year I attended the Sullivan Renaissance Winter Conference, and one of many things that stuck with me, is the fact that Sullivan Renaissance has seen it's way through ten successful years of beautification projects, is now in its eleventh year. Quite a bit of history involved in a decade of public beautification projects.

As our own project here in Mountaindale is rapidly reaching a point of completion an idea has germinated in the minds of those involved in the project...what if we took our small storage area of the train now sitting proudly in it's siding, and turn it into a time capsule to be open up ten years from now as the Sullivan Renaissance begins its 21 year of service to our community here in Sullivan County. A poll of those involved in the project including our volunteers shows a great deal of support for this idea, so we are going to go ahead with it.

If you have a small item you would like to have placed into this time capsule, please contact Sherwood Martinelli at (845) 693-4513 or Barb at (845) 434-4747. You can also drop items off at 51 Main Street, Mountaindale NY. Please drop off all items no later than July 31, 2011. The capsule will be closed and placed into the train on August 1st, 2011 and opened again on August first, 2021!
