Bay Saint Louis Bicentennial
The Hancock Historical Society is developing content for a time capsule. The capsule will be sealed on Dec. 8, 2018 at the Bicentennial Celebration to be opened on Dec. 8, 2068.
Individuals of all ages are invited to contribute their observations about present-day life in our community in the form of an essay. In your essay, introduce yourself and tell a short story (200 words or less) about some aspect of your life in present day Bay St. Louis. It might be about school, recreation, dining, work, sports, local organizations, civic institutions, shopping, church, celebrations, events, or anything else that would help a reader in the year 2068 understand what life in the Bay is like now.
The submission deadline is Nov. 30, by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail or drop off at the Hancock County Historical Society, 108 Cue St., Bay St. Louis, MS 39520
Members of the Historical Society will select submissions for inclusion in the time capsule. All submissions will be electronically saved on cloud storage, and selected essays may be published in the Sea Coast Echo and other historical publications.
