To honor tradition and to create the next piece of history, everyone is invited to be a part of the next 100-year photo in “The Big Picture.” 100 years ago in 1922, the early citizens of Streetsboro gathered for the Centennial celebration Labor Day weekend, at public square (Rt 14/43). The group photo was to include all the citizens of Streetsboro with the Old Methodist Church as the backdrop. The 2022 panoramic group photo will take place at 1:00pm, and will include citizens with the New Fire Station as the backdrop.
In honoring the 200-year celebration and city tradition, The City of Streetsboro will cap off the day at 1:30p with the burial of the 2022 Bicentennial Time Capsule. The Bicentennial Committee is soliciting ideas of items to be placed inside the time capsule. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org. The stainless-steel capsule will be buried near the Fire Station, to be unearthed in 2072 during the Semiquincentennial celebrations. The exact burial location will be indicated with a granite marker that will allow citizens to visit for the next 50 years.
