About the Time Capsule

Community Centres SA (CCSA) is celebrating its 40th Anniversary and CCSA was honoured to have Her Excellency the Honourable Frances Adamson AC, Governor of South Australia, host a Vice Regal Reception to acknowledge CCSA being the Peak Body for the sector. 

During the Vice Regal Reception, Her Excellency addressed guests and was invited to place a copy of her speech into the CCSA Time Capsule. 

The theme that was selected for the Time Capsule was: “What do you see Community Centres as being in 40 years’ time?” – 2063.

The Time Capsule was chosen to symbolise the importance of acknowledging CCSA’s impact within the sector up until this current point in time. As well as, giving an opportunity for its members, stakeholders and supporters to collaboratively reflect on how they see Community Centres place in society in the future. 

This exclusive Vice Regal Reception ies just one of several events that will celebrate CCSA’s 40th Birthday and will conclude with a special Morning Tea for all our members and sector to attend later on in the year to seal the Time Capsule.
