Rosies honored at annual gala

IVP-WS J. Tom Baca presents Marian Parsons Wynn with a plaque honoring her for her work as a boilermaker at the Kaiser Shipyards during World War II and with the Rosie the Riveter Trust.

The Rosie the Riveter Trust hosted its annual gala in Richmond, California, Sept. 17 to raise money to support its charitable programs, including the Rosie the Riveter World War II Home Front National Historical Park. Their programs, including Rosie’s Service Corps and Every Kids Outdoors, preserve history and open new horizons for youth. In addition, the Boilermakers union supports and works with the Rosie the Riveter Trust to promote opportunities for women in traditionally male trades.
