100th Anniversary Time Capsule


In his comments presented at Chanhassen's 50th Anniversary Celebration on Monday, May 8, 2017, Mayor Denny Laufenburger invited everyone in the community to write and submit a personal story to be shared at the city's 100th Anniversary Celebration in May, 2067. Here are the details:

  • It can be a letter, a poem, photos, email, etc.  
  • Tell your story about your neighborhood, your work, something you have experienced during this year, or the recent past.  
  • Talk about Chanhassen, Minnesota, or the world.  
  • Think about what you would like the people 50 years from now to know about you and your town of today!

Send your story to:

Chanhassen City Hall
ATTN:  2067 Time Capsule
PO Box 147
Chanhassen, MN 55317

City staff will capture all these letters, poems, stories, and pictures and save them for presentation at the City's 100th Anniversary Celebration in 2067.  It will be sort of like a time capsule, and hopefully some of your memories with be shared with the people gathered to celebrate 50 years from now. Be sure to sign your name!

2067 Anniversary Celebration

Although Mayor Laufenburger expects to be resting in Chanhassen Pioneer Cemetery in 2067, he implores everyone who is able to attend Chanhassen's 100th Anniversary Celebration and share how Chanhassen grew from the 'Frontier to the Future' and preserved the very best of our character along the way.
