A vault for Penn College’s Centennial time capsule has been constructed on the first floor of Madigan Library by instructor Glenn R. Luse’s Brick Masonry class. Over the past week, the students laid six courses of glass block purchased through Clif Grimes at Beavertown Block Co. Inc. The capsule, to be filled with various items suggested and collected throughout the college’s 2014 Centennial celebration, will be placed in the library vault Wednesday. Billtown Mechanical Corp. fabricated the surrounding track system and will seal the top, Luse said. Students involved were Brett D. Aldinger, of Easton; Anthony J. DiBucci, of Glenshaw; Ciaran E. Cahalane, Newtown Square; Brianna L. Lizza, of Pittston; and Daniel R. McKay, of Havertown. Lizza is enrolled in building science and sustainable design: building construction technology concentration; the others are majoring in building construction technology: masonry emphasis.
