As a way to honor veterans, mark Luverne's history, and remember the terror attacks of September 11th, a Luverne woman has filled a time capsule to be opened in 10 years.
Diane Sherwood is the founder of Remember Rally, a non-profit that raises money and awareness for first responders and military service members.
This weekend, Sherwood filled an industrial-grade time capsule with several mementos.
Inside, she included things like the current gas prices and home values, Luverne history and even technology.
She also included a never-before-seen photo album of pictures she took from ground zero after the 9/11 attacks.
Her hope is that in ten years, on the 25th anniversary of September 11th, the capsule, and its contents will teach a younger generation about the world today, and what's shaped it.
“I just think it’s good that we don't forget history. We actually have students now in school that were not even born yet because it's been 15 years. So they will touch upon it in schools but we want to make sure that they really keep the history going that they understand.”
The capsule will be registered with the International Time Capsule Society.
It’s currently in the Rock County Library in Luverne.
