On March 7, 1981, the village of Schaumburg sealed a time capsule into the Atcher Municipal Center to honor and remember the 25th anniversary of the incorporation of Schaumburg.

This capsule was scheduled to be revealed during the village's 50th anniversary in 2006. While it's later than expected, these contents will be revealed at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 9, at the Robert O. Atcher Municipal Center, 101 Schaumburg Court in Russ Parker Hall.

A preview of the time capsule contents include a program from the June 6, 1981, Schaumburg Silver Anniversary Dinner Dance, a silver anniversary T-shirt, a copy of the Fall/Winter 1981 Sears Catalog, photos taken by the Schaumburg High School Camera Club, a sealed envelope from the office of the 1981 mayor, Herbert Aigner, and essays by the winners of the Schaumburg Silver Anniversary grade school student essay contest -- Lisa Harrison (sixth grade) of Aldrin School, Dawn Sorce (fifth grade) of Campanelli School, and Amy Geu (fourth grade) of Nathan Hale School.

The village would like to invite these three 1981 essay winners to join in this celebration, though their whereabouts are unknown. If anyone knows Lisa Harrison, Dawn Sorce, or Amy Geu, please ask them to contact director of Community Services Kathleen Tempesta at (847) 923-4718 or
