Time Capsule to be opened in 2012
In 1987 the World Series Champions were the Minnesota Twins, Superbowl XXI Champions were the New York Giants. The quotes you would have heard were; “I’m going to Disneyworld” – Phil Simms after winning Superbowl XXI, “This is your brain…This is drugs…This is your brain on drugs”. The kooshi ball, Jenga, Double Loves transforming plush animals made their appearance in the gift and toy market. The Last Emperor won an Oscar for best film.
1987 was also the year that area students and residents were asked to select or bring an item of importance to be placed in the River City Fest’s Time Capsule. Louisiana was celebrating its Centeseptequinary (1812-1987) that year and a Special Recognition Certificate was given to the Town of Logansport by then Secretary of State, James Harvey "Jim" Brown, Jr. for the placement of the Time Capsule, which is scheduled to be opened during the River City Fest in May 2012. The Time Capsule Committee Chairwoman was Sharon Turner.
