Time capsule inspires Girl Scouts to make their own (VIDEO)

While 10 years ago may not seem far back to adults witnessing the wooden capsule's opening in the City Council Chamber, some of the girls withdrawing the box's contents were infants or unborn at the time, Jackson said.

"Some of the girls who made the capsule (in 2003) our girls know as adults now," she said.

Using materials they found in the box, the girls who opened the time capsule are tracking down their predecessors who packed it, Jackson said.

They're also considering options for the next time capsule.

They may use the same wooden box, "but sometimes girls want to add their own touch because it's their turn now," Jackson said.
