The one-hundredth graduating class of Rockford High School buried a time capsule to commemorate the occasion twenty-five years ago. This Saturday it’s coming out.
The public is welcome to observe the event at North Rockford Middle School on Ten Mile (Division) at 11 a.m. Saturday, June 27 at 11 a.m. The time capsule is a concrete burial vault donated by Pederson Funeral Home.
The Squire covered the burial twenty-five years ago. As quoted in the Squire on May 15, 1984, among items were Dave Vandenboss’ pair of red high-topped tennis shoes. LP (long play) records with music popular at the time, newspapers, magazines, a horn from the band, a class ring and more.
The seniors tried to capture a little bit of what their four years at Rockford High School were like, as well as some memories of 1984.
It will be interesting to see what is unearthed from the past. The capsule was buried at what was then Rockford’s High School.
