Looking for women who helped

July 8, 2012
The Herald-Star

To the editor:

You have heard of Rosie the Riveter, who symbolized the women who served their country during World War II on the home front in the mills and factories while the men who formerly held those jobs were serving in the U.S. military.

Well, what about Amy the Assemblyline Worker, Wendy the Welder or Shelley from the Shell Plant? The members of the Weirton Area Museum and Cultural Center are in search of these women who worked so tirelessly toward the positive conclusion of the war. If you have a story to share or know of someone in our local Tri-State Area who does, contact the museum at (304) 224-1909 or (304) 670-8489. The public is invited to come and meet these women as they will be honored at an ice cream social with Rosie the Riveter on July 21 at the museum, located at 3149 Main St. in downtown Weirton. Make plans to attend this historic event. Help us continue working to preserve our important local history and culture for future generations. For information, check out the museum's website at

Mary Zwierzchowski, co-chair, and I are looking forward to seeing you and hearing your stories.
