Burying the Time Capsule
Cleveland Cultural Gardens November 20, 2016
The Cleveland Cultural Gardens Federation ended their Centennial Year by burying a time capsule at the Kiosk of the Gardens on MLK Blvd. The time capsule has information and artifacts about the Gardens and also Cleveland in 2016. (Go Cavs, Go Tribe) It will be opened in 25 years in 2041.
Paul Burik was the main person behind the time capsule project.
