Wanted: Items for the 2022 Time Capsule

On October 15, 2022, the Terrebonne Garden Club, in collaboration with the Terrebonne 200 Bicentennial Celebration, will dedicate and bury a time capsule in the Courthouse Square. We would like items that presently reflect our parish.

Some examples of the types of items we would like to include are:

  • Newspaper articles
  • Scroll or handwritten notes
  • Events
  • Money
  • Menus
  • Cookbooks
  • Essays written by local students on what Terrebonne Parish means to them or a typical day in their lives
  • Memorabilia from movies and reality shows (such as Cajun Justice and Swamp People) filmed in Terrebonne Parish
  • Roof shingle with newspaper articles from Ida, Gustav, and other hurricanes
  • Items from Houma Indians (Houma United Nations School), IDJC (Pointe Aux Chenes French immersion school), Finding our Roots
  • Tickets, pictures, newspaper articles, etc. from state championship games

If you or your club or organization would like to place a representation item in the time capsule, bring it to the library (large meeting room to the left as you enter) between 9 a.m. and 12 p.m. on September 14 or September 21, 2022. Keep the following in mind:

  • The capsule is a 24" cube (2 ft. by 2 ft. by 2 ft.).
  • The item should be vacuumed packed or sealed in a zip lock bag.
  • If the item is a pamphlet/paper, please laminate it.
