Rosies Set To Invade Richmond



Rosie the Riveter Record Attempt Brings Rosies Young and Old to Richmond

Events Honor Rosie the Riveter and World War II Home Front Effort

RICHMOND, Calif. – Women who worked in the Richmond Kaiser shipyards and at home front workplaces throughout California and the nation will be honored as Rosies on Saturday, Aug. 12, at this year’s Rosie Rally and Home Front Festival. The rally’s goal includes setting a new Guinness World Record for “The Largest Gathering of People Dressed as a Rosie the Riveter.” With a group in Ypsilanti, Mich., challenging that record in October, the Bay Area event aims to exceed the record, currently 2,229, and keep it in the Bay Area. The iconic Rosie the Riveter, building ships, airplanes and more, inspired thousands to work in support of the war effort during World War II, pitching in and tackling new challenges in the workplace and beyond. This spirit continues to inspire people today with the “We Can Do It!” spirit. The Home Front Festival offers kids activities, live entertainment, naturalists, historic exhibits, a display of World War II vehicles, ship tours, food trucks and more.

WHO:             Original Rosies from the Bay Area and throughout California, and thousands of men, women and children dressed as Rosie the Riveter rallying in the “We Can Do It!” spirit and celebrating the home front era at the Home Front Festival.

    This is the most wonderful thing i have ever experience and i need to share this great testimony.
    About how i get my ex husband after a breakup.
    I never believed it, because i never heard nor learn anything about it before.
    My name is Willie B. Garcia from US Florida
    I’m so excited sharing this testimony here about how I got my ex husband back after a long time break up that almost led to a divorce all thanks to Dr Ahmed for his wonderful help. Am a woman who love and cherish my husband more than any other thing you can imagine on earth. My husband was so lovely and caring after 3 years of marriage he was seriously ill and the doctor confirm and said he has a kidney infection that he needed a kidney donor, that was how I start searching for who can help, doctor has given me a periodic hour that he will live just 24 hours left, that was how I ask the doctor if I can be of help to my husband that was how he carried out the text, the confirming was successful, I was now having this taught that since 3 years now we got married I have not be able to get pregnant, can I ever get pregnant again? That was the question I ask the doctor, he never answer his response was did you want to lost your husband? I immediately reply no I can’t afford to lose him. After the operation my husband came back to live and was healthy I was also ok with the instruction given to me by the doctor, after 3 months my husband came home with another lady telling me, that is our new wife that will give us kids and take care for us, that was how I was confused and started crying all day, that was how my husband ran away with his new wife cleanable. Since then I was confuse don’t know what to do that was how I went back to the doctor and tell him everything, he told me that, this is not just ordinary, it must be a spiritual problem that was how he gave me this Email: that I should tell he all my problem that he can help, that was how I contacted he and I do as instructed.  After 22 hours and I have done what he ask me to do, my husband start searching for me and went back to the doctor, that was how he came back to me, he also told me not to worry that I will get pregnant, this month making it ten Months I contacted he, and am now having a baby of nine months and 2 weeks old all thanks to Dr Ahmed for his help that is why I have put it as a must for me to spread the news about Dr Ahmed is a place to resolve marriage/relationship problems? Contact: E-mail:… Call him or what’s-app: +2348160153829 stay bless
