On June 15th, POUA joined the Greater Haverhill Foundation, Mayor James Fiorentini, and Tim Jordan and others from Team Haverhill, to put together a time capsule to be opened in the year 2041 and to bury it within the (under construction) Harbor Place development. The team requested ideas from students, our future, and had town members vote on items to be included in the time capsule. Students from Tilton (elementary) School, Hunking (middle) School and Haverhill High chose items to be included, and one member of each class was chosen to a include a letter to his/her future self. The event summarized Haverhill's past and its present state, including the progress of the Harbor Place building, and looked towards it future.
