MOUNT VERNON — A bit of Mount Vernon business history will be able to be viewed 50 years from now, thanks to the efforts of members of the Knox County Chamber of Commerce. A special ceremony is planned at this year’s annual awards dinner on Friday, Jan. 6, 2017, when the chamber officers will dedicate and seal a time capsule, commemorating the chamber’s 100th anniversary.

In an attempt to gather a variety of items for the time capsule, the chamber is inviting all members to donate items which will be unveiled in a ceremony in 2066. Suggested items that could be included in the time capsule are photos of business staff, promotional items from businesses, company newsletters, brochures, current business statistics and letters from company executives.
