A time capsule was dug up at during a program sponsored by the Worthington Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) at Worthington's Bicentennial Homecoming on at Thomas Worthington High School on July 5, 2003. Pictured (left to right) are Melanie Brown (Worthington Chapter Regent), Charlotte Brown, Harvey Minton (Mayor), Dr. David Cavanaugh (former Principal, Worthington High School), Dr. Richard Littell (Principal, Thomas Worthington High School) and James Lorimer (former Mayor). The time capsule was buried by the Bicentennial Charter Oak in May, 1977 at the time of its rededication. The first Bicentennial Charter Oak, a gift in honor of the nation's Bicentennial from the Worthington Chapter DAR was planted on May 26, 1976 but was vandalized the following year. Worthington High School students were so upset by the vandalism that they raised funds to replace the tree. They also buried this time capsule to be opened in 2003 at the time of Worthington's Bicentennial. The time capsule contained photographs of students, slips of paper with names of the 1,700 students who contributed to the tree's replacement (some containing messages) and school memorabilia. Contents of the time capsule were displayed at Thomas Worthington High School and then buried in another time capsule in the fall of 2003.
