Help send a message to 2114

Ever wondered what youd say to the residents of Invermere in 2114? You can imagine what it was like on the shores of Lake Windermere back in 1914, but what will it look like in 2114?

Youll have your chance to scribe a note to 2114 at the Message to the Next Century event at Pynelogs on Saturday, October 18th. Pynelogs celebrated its 100 birthday this year, and in honour of its grand history and continued importance in our community, we are hosting the launching of the Pynelogs Time Capsule. The ceramic container was created by our very own ceramic artist, Pauline Newhouse, and will be displayed at Pynelogs until its opening on October 18th, 2114.

The Message to the Next Century event will include many interesting and fun things to do. Not only will you be able to scribe a message to the next century and have your picture taken with the capsule, there will be live music, appetizers, ghost tours (yes, Pynelogs is haunted!) and a fabulous silent auction with original artwork from Treva Burton and Egbert Oudendag, a Tinhorn Creek Vineyard package, a CV Arts Entertainment package and a Chef Dinner Event by Lara McCormack from From Scratch.

Cmon down to Pynelogs around 7 p.m. on Saturday, October 18th, bring your family and friends, and be part of this auspicious event to honour a grand old community building and send off a Message to the Next Century.
