(BOISE, ID) – The Treasure Valley Family YMCA is providing the public a chance to glimpse into the past through a time capsule. The capsule was encased at the West Boise YMCA and Boise City Aquatic Center on Nov. 8, 1995. 

“It’s really exciting to see how far we have come as a YMCA and as a community since 1995,” said David Duro, President and CEO, Treasure Valley Family YMCA. “The partnership between the City of Boise and the Y that made the Boise City Aquatic Center possible has led to a positive impact on the Treasure Valley through swim lessons, dive teams, swim meets, and countless hours of fun.”  

Former City of Boise Mayor, Brent Coles will attend the time capsule opening along with YMCA CEO, David Duro, and Doug Holloway, Superintendent of Recreation Services for the City of Boise. The capsule will be opened Sunday, Nov. 8, and will be available for viewing by the public as officials reveal what is inside at an online watch party on Nov. 10, at 11:30 am.
