FOLEY, Ala. (AP) - Foley officials have opened a 33-year-old
time capsule as part of the Baldwin County Bicentennial

The capsule was sealed in 1976 during celebrations for America's
200th birthday. The 6-foot plastic cylinder includes letters from
residents to their children, coins, photos, brochures and many
items from the U.S. bicentennial.

The Press Register reports Tuesday the items will go on display
at the Foley Museum and Archives building. Officials have not set a
date for the exhibit to open.

City Councilman Wayne Trawick, who presided over the opening
ceremony, said family members who had items in the capsule can
request the material, and copies will be placed on exhibit.

He said other items removed included a Baldwin County
commemorative book from the U.S. bicentennial, along with a patch
and coin.
