At this meeting, the Parade Committee will showcase a time capsule sealed from over 25 years ago! Back in 1988, the Dorchester Allied Veterans Council presented a time capsule of Dorchester mementos including photos, letters, videotape and other materials commemorating local citizens and events, including the Dorchester Day Parade. The Parade Clerk at the time, John Harold, gave the key to his daughter and sent the capsule over to the MA Archives over at Umass Boston. e Clerk at the time, John Harold, gave the key to his daughter and sent the capsule over to the Massachusetts Archives by UMass Boston. We picked up the capsule and Kathy Dana (Harold) is brining the key. Come join us at the dinner and let's see what we find....
For those of you who were able to join us last month, we opened the capsule at the Annual Meatloaf Dinner.
