While the pun amuses us, we don’t discount the innate courage shown by each of our 2019 Rosies. As teenagers from all corners of Canada and the US, they took buses and trains across the country to take jobs they had no idea how to do, among people they had no idea how to relate to. They became shipyard welders, munitions inspectors, riveters and drivers. One even made mosquito netting! It’s their gutsiness that inspired them to later become world travelers, engineers, scholars and business owners.  We are ever inspired.

We’re proud to present our 12th annual calendar, featuring all women currently living in Oregon. Thanks to the 2019 Calendar Girls, their families for sharing them and especially to Yvonne Fasold, our Oregon Rosie organizer.

Calendars are $20 each.  To purchase please visit here
