There are exactly two months to go until the Jubilee Time Capsule closes on September 30th! We have 16,770 days to fill and we need you to help us fill as many of them as possible! Here are a few ideas for inspiration:
May 6, 1954: Roger Bannister runs the mile in 3 minutes and 59 seconds, becoming the first person to ever run a mile in under 4 minutes! What record-breaking events have you witnessed? Did you watch Roger Bannister carry the Olympic Torch in Oxford this summer?
July 12, 1962: Here’s one for rock fans – the Rolling Stones played their first show ever on this date. This year marks their 50th anniversary! Just one year later, The Beatles released their debut album. Do you remember when these rock legends broke onto the scene? Has anyone you know ever seen them live?
October 5, 1984: Marc Garneau becomes the first Canadian in space. Do you remember the first time someone from your country went into space? Have you watched other space launches?
April 30, 1988: World Expo ’88 opened in Brisbane Australia. The Expo was also part of the bicentennial celebrations of Europeans arriving in Australia. Do you remember this great year for Australia? Have you ever been to a World’s Fair?
These are just a few of the days we want to fill in our timeline but there are so many more great events we’d love to hear about! Maybe you’ve shared your memories with us but what about your parents’ and grandparents’ memories? What historical events are most important to you? Share memories to help us fill in our Jubilee Time Capsule timeline!
