A local hospital is set to turn 100 years old next week.

Sunday, Salem Community Hospital began celebrating its centennial by asking residents to sign their birthday card. They have also been asking for kids to leave their handprint on their card.

The hospital plans on taking the names and handprints and putting them into a time capsule.

“That will be burried on the day we have the ceremony for the new patient bed tower,” said Michele Hoffmiester of Salem Community Hospital.  “So this assures that the community continues to be a part of Salem Community Hospital.”

The hospital also took the banner to several community fairs to get signatures and hand prints.
