AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — The Maine Bicentennial Commission wants to hear from residents about what should go the state’s official Bicentennial Time Capsule.

The commission wants to preserve items from our era for future Mainers to rediscover upon the state’s 300th anniversary, a hundred years from now, in the year 2120. The deadline is Aug. 13.

“We look forward to receiving creative and thoughtful suggestions for the ‘People’s Choice’ time capsule items,” said state Sen. Bill Diamond, chairman of the Maine Bicentennial Commission.

The commission will review the submissions and present suggestions for a vote in the fall. The Bicentennial Time Capsule will be dedicated and sealed in a December ceremony in Augusta.
