The City of Carmel-by-the-Sea — incorporated in 1916 – will hold a ceremony in City Hall Council Chambers at 3:30 p.m. on Friday, January 27, 2017, to cap its centennial celebrations year.
The event will begin with a short ceremony that will center on the Centennial time capsule that will be buried in Devendorf Park in the near future. The Centennial Parade DVD will be shown.
Over the past year the City’s 2016 Centennial Committee has collected items for inclusion in the time capsule that will provide future citizens with a historical perspective on life in Carmel-by-the-Sea in 2016. The empty time capsule will be on display. The list of the more than 100 items to be placed in it will be on hand, but the contents themselves will not be there.
Light refreshments will be served after the ceremony.
The City Hall Council Chambers are located on the east side of Monte Verde Street between Ocean and 7th avenues.
