City Court of Slidell presents Time Capsule to Slidell Museum
At the kick off for the recent Slidell White Linen Night & Lagniappe, I had the honor to officially present a time capsule to the Slidell Museum. In the time capsule are digitized historical research, images and video, along with memorabilia – all items we collected to use when marking the Court’s 50th Anniversary in 2014.
A special thanks to Slidell Museum Director Bonnie Vanney, who agreed to keep the time capsule in the museum for the next 50 years, where it will be kept safe until it can be opened in 2064 by Court officials who would be marking the Court’s 100th Anniversary.
Included in the time capsule is a letter I worte to the Judge who will preside over the Court in 2064.
