December 12, 2017 - Flagler County's centennial year - 2017 - will draw to a close at 4 p.m. December 18 when a time capsule is buried in front of the Government Services Building.

The Centennial Committee on behalf of the Flagler County Board of County Commissioners has assembled a collection of letters, photographs, memorabilia, and other printed materials to be unearthed by a future generation 50 or 100 years from now.

"We welcome the community to join us for this event," said Commission Chair Greg Hansen. "It's been a delight to look back on our history as we contemplate the future."

Light refreshments will be served. The Centennial Committee will show photographic recap at the beginning of the Board of County Commissioners meeting at 5 p.m.

The time capsule contents will be on display in the lobby of the Government Services Building on Wednesday, December 13.

"The Centennial Committee, volunteers, and staff did a wonderful job creating a memorable year and engaging the community," County Administrator Craig Coffey.

Events kicked off with a Centennial Celebration on April 29. The committee also planned a year-long geocache event, numerous kayaking events, a photo contest, and held screenings of the "Creature from the Black Lagoon" and its sequel.

Florida Frontiers featured Flagler County's centennial on both radio and television.

Additionally, the Centennial Committee - with the help of the Flagler County General Services Department - created a float to participate in the Flagler Beach Rotary Club parades on the Fourth of July and the Holiday at the Beach Parade, as well as the Palm Coast Starlight Parade.

The float took first place at the Holiday at the Beach parade for its theme, and a trophy offered by the Golden Lion Café. It also took a prize for "Best Float" at the Starlight Parade.
