September GSMC Meeting
Saturday, September 7
September GSMC Meeting  (Meeting)
1:00 pm
Monroe County Community College, Administration Building -Rooms 173 A & B
Irene Miller, a Holocaust survivor, will take you on a survival journey little  written  and  known about. You will sleep in the winter under an open sky on the no man’s land; you will freeze in a Siberian labor camp where the bears come to your door front. In Uzbekistan, you will live on boiled grass or broiled onions, and shiver with malaria. You will spend years in orphanages. When this is over you will wonder how a child with this background grows up to become a positive, creative, accomplished woman with  a joy of living and love to share. Irene will have copies of her book, Into No Man's Land, available for purchase.
 
For more information about Irene and her book, check out her website www.irenemillerspeaker.com
As always, the public is welcome to attend.

Lenore Bolthouse will talk about the Yankee Air Museum
 
She will give a short history of the working women of WWII, the contributions they made in factories, offices, schools, and agriculture, but especially the work they did in the munitions factories, the shipyards, the tank manufacturing , and especially the bomber plants.  They filled the workforce freeing the men to serve in the armed forces.  Rosie the Riveter is a cultural icon and embodies the spirit of women everywhere.  She will bring items for sale and a bomber plant cut out for photo ops.
 
As always, the public is welcome to attend.
Please note, the usual date of our meeting has changed because of Custer Week activities.
