2016.  Washington Women in Trades 9th Rosie calendar. 

As the Rosie’s reach their mid 90’s, they're getting more difficult to find, so we've expanded our search outside of Washington state.  In June of 2015, we attended the American Rosie the Riveter Association’s annual gathering in Richmond, CA which is home to the Rosie the Riveter/World War II Home Front National Historical Park. It was pure joy meeting these women and their families from all over the United States.  We toured the fantastic museum, visited the SS Red Oak Victory (which some of these women had helped build) and shared meals with them.  These gals are a national treasure that we’ll never forget. 

And as always... Thanks to all our Rosies and their families for sharing their lives with us!
