Centenary of Griffith

Time Capsule Buried in 1971 to be Raised in 2016

The town of Griffith was proclaimed on 4 August 1916 and 100 years to the day, Griffith will celebrate.

As part of the celebrations, on this day, a time capsule which was buried in 1971 on the grounds of Griffith City Council will be raised to reveal a snapshot of our city "frozen in time".

Councillor Christine Stead and Councillor Alison Balind can't wait to discover what treasures lay beneath the plaque.
