The Texarkana Sesquicentennial is beginning to wind down but it ain't over yet, and whether you have participated or you haven't there's is at least one more chance for you to get involved, how about a contribution to the TXK150 Time Capsule.

That's right you, I said you can submit your artifacts to be placed inside the Texarkana Sesquicentennial Time Capsule.

The TXK 150 Committee, which is a collaborative effort between the Cities of Texarkana, Arkansas and Texas, is now inviting residents and businesses to contribute artifacts to the Sesquicentennial Time Capsule. This capsule will be buried on Friday, December 8, 2023, in downtown Texarkana, and will not be opened until the year 2073 by the TXK Bi-Centennial Committee.

Throughout the year, the TXK 150 Committee has organized numerous events to celebrate the city's 150th anniversary, including a Commemorative Ball and the unearthing of a time capsule buried in 1973. To make the Sesquicentennial Time Capsule as representative as possible, the public is asked to submit items of general interest, such as letters, photos, publications, programs, brochures, and small trinkets. The committee, appointed by both city councils, will have the final say on what goes into the time capsule.

Don't miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to contribute to Texarkana's history. Drop off your artifacts at the Texarkana, Texas City Hall located at 220 Texas Blvd. before Thursday, November 30, 2023.
