TELLICO PLAINS-What will the world be
like in 2023? Will anyone know who Taylor Swift was? Will bootcut
jeans still be all the rage? Will newspapers still exist? Will money
look the same? Will life be completely different?
The Ball Play Girl Scout Troop #20777
pondered all these questions and more when searching for items to
enclose in a time capsule, which will be unearthed 10 years from now.
"The Brownies needed a community
service project to finish out and earn their last badge for the
year," said Troop Co-Leader Jessica McCarter. "The final project
completes their journey book."
Each year, troop members receive a
journey book with projects for the upcoming year. Each completed
project earns the Girl Scout a badge. The troops began their journey
books in August 2012.
For their end-of-the-year project, the
troop decided to put together and bury a time capsule.
"It's something we could do for the
future, now, in the present," said Girl Scout Neva McCarter.
In a dedication ceremony on Tuesday
afternoon at Friends Meeting of Ball Play Church, Pastor Scott Knight
described the troop's project.
