Blast from the Past

A $2 bill, a Kennedy 50-cent piece, a copy of U.S. News & World Report that covered Vietnam—these are some of the items that were buried in 1968 at the Santa Rosa Court House in a time capsule, which was unearthed this spring. The tradition will continue with the burial of another time capsule during the Santa Rosa Sesquicentennial. Besides getting a peek at the capsule’s content, you can listen to live music, take in historical displays, and watch an outdoor screening of Hitchcock’s Shadow of a Doubt at the free celebration. The event will be held on September 8, 3–10 p.m., at Courthouse Square in Santa Rosa. See for more information.
