The Mountainside community joined Mayor Mirabelli and the Town Council for the opening of a time capsule which was buried in 1995. The town held the ceremony on October 22nd, 2020 in the parking lot of Constitution Plaza.

Residents and community leaders from Mountainside helped with the unveiling of the contents which included memories from 25 years ago, old pictures, newsletters, a 100-year celebration t-shirt, and information from the Borough.

Speakers that day included leaders and members from: Mountainside Rotary Club, Mountainside Restoration Committee, Girl and Boy Scout troops, Foothill Club, Our Lady of Lourdes Parish, Mountainside Public Library, Mountainside Softball and Baseball League, Board of Education, Mountainside Music Association, Newcomers Club, and the Community Presbyterian Church.

The opening of the capsule served as a final celebration for Mountainside’s 125th anniversary. Attendance was limited due to social distancing requirements. The event was also live streamed on Channel 35 and 39, Facebook, and Youtube.

This special event was coordinated by the 125th Anniversary Chairs, Councilwoman Deanna Andre and Councilwoman Rachel Pater.
