The village of Masset is looking for items for the time capsule it will be burying this spring as part of its 50th anniversary celebrations. At Monday night’s council meeting (Feb. 21), councillor Ed Woode said he has been talking to local businesses about donations for the time capsule, like menus or schedules. “The response has been absolutely excellent, I’m really amazed,” Mr. Woode said. Businesses and individuals have until sometime in April to decide what they would like to contribute to the capsule, he said. The time capsule will be buried, and instructions left for it to be dug up again 50 years from now. Meanwhile, preparations continue for the 50th anniversary, which will be held on the May long weekend in conjunction with Harbour Days. Mr. Woode said a very eager committee is holding another meeting this week to make more plans.
