Members of the Derby Elks Lodge 571 at 73 Elizabeth St. will open a cornerstone Friday — just about 100 years after it was first laid down.
A sealed box is expected to be inside that cornerstone. It was placed there on Dec. 8, 1915.
The Elks will open that box — and hopefully find some Derby artifacts inside.

More than a decade ago the Matto family of Shelton rolled the dice on Michele and Fred Bialek, leasing the couple space to start The Liquid Lunch, a restaurant aimed at giving downtown diners more choices than the common fare of pizza, burgers, or Chinese food.
“You took a chance on us,” Michele Bialek told the Mattos Wednesday. “You could have had a Domino’s come in here.”
Now, the eatery has been “reimagined,” in the Bialeks’ words — with an eye toward distancing it even further from mass-produced meals.
