WTEN/News10 aired a story on a time capsule burial at Eddy Hawthorne Ridge in East Greenbush. Residents and colleagues of the assisted living facility wanted to celebrate the strength the community has shown during the COVID-19 pandemic.

From the story:

During an outdoor ceremony, residents and staff members planted the time capsule on its campus for future generations to unearth in 20 years.

What’s inside? Symbolic items that depict life during the pandemic, including: a thermometer, wipes, sanitizer, a 6-foot tape measure (for proper social distancing), toilet paper, a “HawthorneStrong” hat and t-shirt, photos, a newspaper with a COVID-19 headline, a poem about the pandemic times, and a thumb drive with a music video chronicling the strength that residents and staff have shown.
