ROSIE THE RIVETER DAY COMING TO THE MUSEUM OF FLIGHT

Written by Elizabeth Davis. Posted in Uncategorized

Rosie the Riveter Day is coming to the Museum of Flight at Rome’s Russell Regional Airport on Saturday, March 16th.  Activities will be held from 11 am until 2 pm and will include the opportunity to meet some local “Rosies” who played a pivotal role during World War II. 

Ken Suffridge, MOF spokesman, calls the occasion “a tribute to the Rosies” that will be open to the public. 

Keep Rome-Floyd Beautiful will be on hand at the event for the dedication of the Rosie the Riveter Memorial Rose Garden, indicates director Emma Wells, who adds that this project is being spearheaded by KRFB supporter and local master gardener Jenny Ward.  

Rosie the Riveter Day will also feature photo opportunities with a World War II-era plane like the ones on which Rosies worked, reenactors, ’40s music and even the chance to learn how to swing dance. 

For more details about the event, contact the Museum of Flight via telephone at (423) 228-2FLY (2359).
