Rosie the Riveter

Agnes Moore - Rosie the Riveter

The cultural icon of women during WWII was Rosie the Riveter! Join with the San Ramon Valley Historical Society to meet a real Rosie the Riveter - Agnes Moore. Along with many other women she supported America's war effort by working in Richmond's Kaiser Shipyards in the 1940's. As her skills increased she earned the rank of a master welder! Her stories will delight you as she relates how she helped open the doors for women to enter into the American work force long closed to them. A 1942 song "Rosie the Riveter" popularized the roles these hardworking women played as women crossed a major turning point in our society. This was a pivotal change in our history.

The San Ramon Valley Historical Society will meet on November 15th in the party room of the Black Bear Diner. We will gather at 6:30 pm, begin dinner at 7 pm, and then enjoy our speaker!

The Black Bear Dinner is located adjacent to the Best Western Motel in Danville at I-680 and Camino Ramon (Use the Sycamore Valley Road exit from I-680). The dinner cost is $23.00 per person. Dessert is extra on your tab.
