The GCH Auxiliary will also dedicate a time capsule that will be placed in one of the walls in the main lobby. Platt listed some of the items that will be put inside the capsule,”Our first hospital flag, pictures from the first three hospitals, some of the publications that the hospital has put out, some pictures of equipment that might look pretty funny in a hundred years.”
A cast aluminum plaque will be placed over the capsule. The hospital was founded September 9th, 1913, by Dr. W.A. Carr.
