There is a time capsule on Wall Street under the sidewalk next to the Wheatland Bank Financial Center building that was buried there by the Hamblen Elementary School's second-grade classes in May 1978, to be opened by Spokane students in 2078. The bronze plaque above it also states "We bring you messages of peace, friendship, andlove. May you always understand one another."

How to Join the Board

The Downtown Spokane Partnership (DSP) Board of Directors governs the DSP. The Board consists of up to 23 directors who are appointed by the DSP Board itself to direct the policies and operations of the organization. The Board’s primary role is to assure that the DSP resources are directed in ways that protect and advance the Downtown interests and its role in the region. Members of the DSP Board of Directors provide a variety of skills and expertise, community connections, occupations, ages and backgrounds. Members are nominated every November with the final slate to be approved by membership at the DSP Annual Meeting each February. Board Members are eligible to serve for three consecutive two-year terms, with the exception of annual appointments.
