October GSMC Meeting

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.
