Hanson’s 2020 bicentennial plans underwent a deal of improvisation over the last two years because of the COVID-19 pandemic, but the time capsule had to go in the ground eventually. Above, Marcus Linn vice chairman of the 200th Year anniversary committee, seals the capsule, with an assist from Lee Gamache, holding her grandson Jack (left). In a nod to bipartisanship, after the time capsule was lowered into the ground, incumbent state representatives Dave DeCoste, R-Norwell, (who now represents part of Hanson) and Josh Cutler, D-Pembroke, were joined by Republican candidate Kenneth Sweezey ceremoniously bury it.
