A 25-year-old time capsule was opened on Wednesday afternoon during a celebration of CNC's 50th anniversary. It was standing-room only as former CNC president Dr. Terry Weninger, former CNC welding instructor Cy Fortin, and current CNC president Dr. Dennis Johnson all took turns opening the capsule and removing the many items inside. The capsule was built by former welding instructor Cy Fortin and his welding students and was sealed in 1994, the year of CNC's 25th anniversary. Items removed from the capsule included a December 28, 1994 copy of The Prince George Citizen, a November 30, 1994 copy of the Free Press, CNC Notes, Counselling Newsletter, Asterisk, BC Report (Dec. 12 issue on CNC), CNC calendars, CNC enrolment fast facts brochure, CNC historical highlights brochure, CNC organizational chart, and a CNC phone list. There was also aerial photos of CNC's woodlot, a vial of Prince George water, 25th anniversary Christmas tree bulbs, a floppy disk with a course outline to show the "technology of the day," a child's CNC t-shirt, and a curling funspiel trophy and medal. The items from CNC's time capsule will remain on display at CNC's library.
