Standing beside a table full of the contents from a time capsule “buried” at the fire station in 1936, retired Fire Capt. Bob Ferris remarked on the photo of his grandfather, former Fire Chief Herb Ferris. “It was a little emotional to see this,” Bob Ferris said. On Thursday afternoon, city officials, including Mayor Roxann Wedegartner, and a handful of members of the Fire Department were invited to the temporary fire station on Hope Street for the opening of a time capsule taken from the southeast cornerstone of the former fire station on Main Street. The opening of the time capsule took place just hours before the city closed on the sale of the property near the intersection of Main Street and Coombs Avenue, where the new permanent fire station is slated to be built.
