Predictions made 25 years ago about what Pitt Meadows and its school district would look like in 2015 were revealed at a time capsule open house reception held at Davie Jones elementary Friday.

Student and teacher alumni from all over B.C. were among the invited guests who witnessed the opening of a Second World War steamer trunk. A Maple Ridge News and Province paper, school photo album, Canada and B.C. flag, school catchment maps, cassette tape featuring students from the time singing, as well as a floppy disk that had demagnetized since being placed in the trunk were some of the many items revealed during the ceremony.
