Cornerstone ceremony assisted by Masons - A time capsule was cemented by the Masons in 1921 in the northern-most corner of the RRHS senior building. We've waited 100 years. You do NOT want to miss the unveiling of the time capsule. The Masons will be on hand to assist in the ceremony of our 100-year-old capsule. The Masons will perform a 100 Year Re-dedication ritual.
