Do you or someone you know possess brochures or artifacts from the 1966 Time Capsule Event?  The Society is now collecting items for an exhibit celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Time Capsule, which will occur in August. Please let us know if you have any mementos to share — we are especially looking for one of the coveted BBQ tickets presented to attendees in 1966 that promised a free BBQ in the year 2016.  Contact us at 949-248-8121 or at DPHSNewsletter@gmail.com.
