Yesterday, during our brainstorming session for the Silver Jubilee Celebrations we hit on an idea (source: Vilva) which all of us liked very much and decided to implement – Golden Chest.
The Golden Chest will be a treasure trove of memory deposits (MDs) with each one us depositing something which we get to open & see only after another 25 years. The Golden Chest will be sealed on August 11, 2012 and will be opened again ONLY on Saturday, August 15, 2037, on the occasion of our Golden Jubilee Celebration.
Your Memory Deposit can be anything that is small in size and will last 25 years. Here are some examples:
- a note or a message
- picture/s (photograph)
- coin or currency note
- cd / dvd / memory card
- a pencil or pen
We will make a chest of about 1.5′ x 1.5′ x 1.0′. It will be made airtight to the extent possible. Bear in mind the size of the chest before deciding on what you want to store. Whatever you want to deposit must be sealed in an envelope with your name written on the envelope.
The custody of the Chest will change every year. The key to the chest will be with a person other than the custodian and it will also rotate every year.
We will have an Annual Reunion in August during which we will handing over ceremony every year in August by which the custody of the Chest will be passed on to a different person.
We want a Memory Deposit from each and every one of our batchmates. Please get yours ready soon. If you are not attending the SJC, please reach it to us through post, courier or messenger. Those of living abroad can send it through someone who is attending the SJC from your area or mail it to us.
Feel free to post your comments and suggestions.
