SYOSSET, N.Y. (AP) - Some adult alumni of a Long Island
elementary school are heartbroken over the disappearance of a time
capsule they buried in 1981 - and they're demanding an explanation
from school administrators.
The Berry Hill Elementary School time capsule contained Smurf
dolls, a Rubik's Cube, baseball cards and other mementos.
Former students of the Syosset school planned to open the
capsule in 2006 to mark the 25th anniversary, but they say school
officials have told them it is missing.
It was buried in an area that was paved over in the mid-1990s.
It was supposedly removed for safekeeping.
One alum, who's now 39, has started a Facebook page, "Hand Over
the Berry Hill School Time Capsule!"
A school spokeswoman says administrators are investigating.
