Among the contributors were students from Millicent North Primary School.

Last November, there was the

ceremonial opening at the Millicent Library of the town time capsule from 1995.

Over 88 items collected from 25 years ago were put on display including a letter from then Millicent Mayor Jim Van Schaik.

Mayor Noll said his own letter-to-the-future in 2047 contained his forthright view on the way his council currently functions.

Millicent Library manager Janice Nitschke acknowledged all who had contributed to the latest time capsule and the efforts of her staff and volunteers Noel Boyle, Nan Minty and Wendy Thomson.

Tuesday’s function was attended by a gathering of 80 and included a talk by freelance planner and former Wattle Range Council chief executive Frank Brennan.

His 15-minute address focussed on his Brennan forebears who emigrated from Ireland to South Australia in the 1850s.
