In preparation for the 130th Gala Celebration, the Salt Lake Chamber Gala Committee decided to excavate the 108 year-old time capsule. While at the time the Chamber did not know exactly where it was located. Thankfully, with help from newspaper articles of the day, local historians and Masonry Restoration the Chamber easily and successfully identified the location of the capsule.
On Tuesday, April 18, 2017, after months of prep work, the time capsule was ready to be removed from the cornerstone of the Commercial Club Building. Some the Chamber executive board and staff gathered to see this momentous occasion.
