Who could “bring home the bacon and fry it up too?” Rosie the Riveter — that’s who!

Although many people know the wartime “Rosie” image, as well as the fact that women took on demanding non-traditional jobs, the multi-faceted role that women played during World War II is often forgotten.

Rosie The Riveter Trust is producing a broadcast-quality documentary on the life and experiences of Ranger Betty Reid Soskin: 

Capture A Legacy from ConvergenceMedia Productions on Vimeo.

A regional, national and international legend, Betty Soskin captures and tells the story of the African American experience from World War II until the present in a stunning and elegant way.

DINNER RESCHEDULED TO AUGUST 30

In light of current concerns for everyone’s health and local government recommendations, we have rescheduled our 20th anniversary annual benefit dinner for August 30, 2020. We want to protect our community and especially not jeopardize our Rosies’ health (certainly our super stars of the event!).

I sincerely ask you to buy your tickets today. Rosie the Riveter Trust relies heavily on the funds raised from this annual dinner to keep our programs afloat and our park thriving. Our Board and I look forward to seeing you on August 30 - same time, same place!

My very best,
