Our Lions Centenary Project
Redeemer Lutheran College time capsule
Rochedale Springwood Lions Club has had a long relationship with Redeemer Lutheran College, and in particular PCC David McKenzie has been involved with the college for many years. Their inaugural Principal, Robin Kleinschmidt has been a judge for lions Youth of the Year project for over 30 years, at club, region and district level, and often mentors other judges.
A time capsule was put down at the college 25 years ago, with Lions clubs involvement, and this was brought out earlier this year, with a number of our members present. So when the concept of a perpetual time capsule that could be reused was discussed our club jumped at the opportunity to be involved, with PCC David as project chairman, and our club approved the expenditure of $2,300 to pay for the stainless steel above ground capsule.
The ceremony to fill the capsule with mementoes and information on the college and Lions took place on the 14th November 2017, which is the tenth anniversary of the creation of the junior school within the college, plus of course the 100th anniversary of the creation of Lions Clubs International. The capsule is due to be opened on the 4th February 2030, being the 50th anniversary of Redeemer Lutheran College. The capsule is designed as an above ground one that can be reused each time it is opened and the existing plaque will be removed and kept in the colleges archives
