CAREFREE – Councilman Arthur Gimson announced during last week’s council meeting, Carefree will be participating in the Arizona Centennial by burying a time capsule at the sundial on Feb. 14, 2012.

The time capsule is scheduled to be opened on February 14, 2059, on the 100th Anniversary of the sundial, to show people in 2059 what Carefree was like in 2012.

On Jan. 17, Carefree announced among the objects it wishes to include in the time capsule are 4 X 6 inch photographs from its citizens documenting Carefree in 2012.

The pictures should be printed on high quality photo paper with the date taken, your name, address and a brief description of the picture printed on the back.

The town will accept up to five pictures from each Carefree resident, Carefree land owner, or Carefree business person.

Photo submissions need to be brought to Carefree Town Hall, 8 Sundial Circle, no later than Friday, Feb. 3.

Unused pictures will not be returned.

No “electronic media” (e.g. CDs) will be allowed for submitting photographs since there is no way of knowing what physical devices and/or software will exist in 2059.
