Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor,

Calling all working women in the Sebago Lakes Community who participated in WWII home front.

American Rosie the Riveter Association is trying to locate women who worked on the home front during WWII. Thousands of women worked to support the war effort as riveters, welders, electricians, inspectors in plants, sewing clothing and parachutes for the military, ordnance workers, rolling bandages, clerical, farming and many other jobs such as volunteer workers collecting scrap metals and other critical materials.

These women have stories of their WWII experiences that are of historical value and perhaps have never been told. American Rosie the Riveter Association would like to acknowledge these women with a certificate and have their stories placed in our Archives.

American Rosie the Riveter Association is a patriotic/non-profit organization with the mission to recognize and preserve the history and legacy of working women during WWII. This organization was founded in 1998 by Dr. Frances Carter, Birmingham Alabama and now has over 65,000 members nationwide. Current elected officers from Connecticut, Maryland, Minnesota, Texas, Oklahoma and Alabama all serve on a volunteer basis.

If you are a woman (or a descendant of a woman) who worked during WWII, or if you are just interested in more information, please check our website at or call the toll free number at 1-888-557-6743 or email at

Thank you,
Mabel Myrick (a Rosie – age 93)
Corresponding Secretary

NOTE FROM THE EDITOR: If there are “Rosies” in the Windham and Raymond communities who have stories to share, please contact Lorraine Glowczak at
