Time Capsule Information Sheet

A time capsule is a wonderful way to capture a snapshot of our community as it is the perfect culmination of celebrating our past, present and future. It will be buried on February 2, 2024 which will be Bonham's 176th Birthday and the final celebration of the Bonham's 175th. We are asking all citizens of Fannin County to sumbit something for Bonham's 175 Time Capsule.  Reopening a time capsule years later is an insightful way to look back on the past with items that are meaningful to that time. 

Time capsule submission form due by 12.29.23
