Governor Honor “Rosie’s” with Proclamation

Joe Denoyer - January 29, 2019 3:53 am

The Kansas American Legion Auxiliary will honor nearly 120 heroic Kansas women who earned the moniker of Rosie the Riveter.  These women answered the call to work on assembly lines, in shipyards, airplane factories, and other institutions in support of World War II’s military operations.  “The Auxiliary wants to recognize its Kansas Rosies for their inspiring patriotism and service to Kansas and the United States,” Auxiliary President Karen Hasting said.  “The Auxiliary will honor its known Rosie the Riveters during the American Legion’s Mid-winter Forum in Dodge City on February 1, 2019.

Auxiliary Vice-president Paula Sellens spearheaded the effort to organize a Roses for Rosies Ceremony.  “I was hopeful that Governor Laura Kelly would support our event,” Sellens said.  “The Legion Press Committee sent a request for a proclamation and described how patriotic the Rosies were.  I received the Governor’s Proclamation today.  I’m thrilled!  The proclamation will be made a part of the ceremony!”
