Laurel Chapter of American Rosie the Riveter Association presents Rearview Mirror

Get In the Mood and Swing into Spring with a 1940s musical presentation performed by Rearview Mirror, Saturday, April 27, from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. at the First United Methodist Church, 424 Main St., Laurel.  Sponsored by the Laurel Chapter of the American Rosie the Riveter Association, this free event will take you back in time to the songs of the era of World War II when the Rosies joined the workforce on the home front to help the war effort.  Doors open at 1 p.m. Light refreshments served. Handicapped accessible. For questions, contact Pat, 240-762-3895.

The mission of Laurel ARRA, one of two chapters in Maryland, is to preserve the history and legacy of the Rosies, and to educate the public about their contributions during WWII. Their service to the country was invaluable in winning WWII, having produced 296,429 airplanes, 102,351 tanks and guns, 87,620 warships, 47 tons of artillery shells, and 44 billion rounds of small arms ammunition.  The Rosies’ long-overdue recognition will be realized on April 10, 2024, when they will be collectively awarded the Congressional Gold Medal at a ceremony at the US Capitol.  The Medal will be on display at the National Museum of American History.
