2014.  Washington Women in Trades 7th Rosie calendar. 

We’re proud to present the Washington Women in Trades 2014 calendar!  This year’s edition features 12 hearty women from Lewis County, Washington; their hometowns include Centralia, Chehalis, Adna, Pe Ell, Mossyrock, Salkum, Napavine, Bear Canyon, Tono, Lincoln Creek and more) Most worked at the Boeing sub plant in Chehalis, and yes, they all have stories to tell.  Many were farm girls; hard work was not an innovation to them—they’d spent their childhood years milking cows, tilling the earth, walking to school and preserving the harvest from family gardens. Speaking of preserving, that’s what this project is all about...  Preserving the stories & the spirit of these women, a national treasure...
Thanks to our Lewis County Rosies!
