Many people probably have never heard of the Tri-County Metal Detecting Club.

But the organization was called into service several weeks ago to help find a time capsule buried nearly 50 years ago on the grounds of Niles McKinley High School. And although the time capsule was not found, the publicity helped the club raise awareness of its existence.

The Tri-County Metal Detecting Club was founded in 1997 and has 60 active members. President Jesse James said the club got started after a newspaper ad called for interested members.

The club will meet at 6 p.m. May 21 at Roosevelt Park in Campbell. The rain location is the Cortland SCOPE Center.
