In February 2019, Independence Bank, newly located in the City of St. Matthews released the following notice throughout the city. 

The Revolution is preserving the St. Matthews community and we need your help!
Independence Bank wants to pay tribute to the community we now call home and celebrate
the past, present and future of St. Matthews. In acknowledgement of our dedication to the
community, we have a special place preserved within the walls of our new signature location
at 3901 Shelbyville Road to house a time capsule that will be opened in 100 years!
Louis R Straub, ll – President of Independence Bank Louisville. 

The Woman’s Club of St. Matthews heeded the call and submitted a copy of the club’s 2019 80th Edition Club Yearbook. 

Our WCSM 2019 club yearbook is comprised of information such as the current by-laws, the poem “A Collection for Clubwomen”, membership rosters with photographs, committees with chairmen, a club calendar with programs, a list of past presidents of our club, and importantly the Object, the purpose of our club.

We feel that in 100 years, the people of the future, who open the time capsule and view our submission, will get a good understanding of our club, what it stood for in 2019, and see the wonderful clubwomen, who by membership in our club, worked together to make a difference in our community.

On Wednesday, September 11, 2019, a Dedication and Recognition Ceremony was held at the Independence bank, with all contributors to the time capsule being recognized with their particular contribution.  We are told that the WCSM 2019 Yearbook was the first item submitted for consideration, and was the first item to be approved to be included in the time capsule.
