DESTIN — The Okaloosa Time Capsule Committee has selected Heritage Museum as the VIVA Florida Anniversary Time Capsule’s location.

Factors in the choice included the museum's proximity to all Okaloosa County residents and security.

Capsule items will preserve memories of today’s events and lifestyle, such as tourism, beaches, military presence and local festivals, restaurants, architecture and businesses.

Photographs, documents or nonperishable objects may represent popular culture, geography, industries, agriculture, education, libraries, museums, cities in the county, and the day’s issues.

For more information, call 609-5102 or 651-7270.

The sealing date celebration is set for the museum's Yule of Yesteryear in December. The capsule would be opened 100 years later.

VIVA is a celebration of Florida’s 500th anniversary.
