- Mount Holly
The setting: It is 1943 and your organization is hosting a meeting to promote “war work” for women. Hear a testimonial from Rosie Niemiec (historical interpreter Stacy Flora Roth), a housewife who decided to do her bit for the war effort (and surprise her husband) by taking a job as a welder in a shipyard. This unique presentation features a character monologue, a display of period artifacts and ephemera, a discussion of women’s participation on the Homefront, and an invitation to the audience to share memories, memorabilia, and personal and family stories of the Second World War.
This program is hosted by the Colonel Thomas Reynolds Chapter, DAR and funded by the Horizons Speakers Bureau of the New Jersey Council for the Humanities, a state partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
