Wesley Enhanced Living Main Line Honors WWII “Rosie the Riveter”

On Sunday, September 4th, Wesley Enhanced Living Main Line hosted a ceremony to honor resident June Robbins for her work as a “Rosie the Riveter” during WWII.

June served as a draftsman at the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard where she built 53 ships and repaired 574 ships for both the US and it’s allies during those years.

The international organization of Rosies, called “Thanks! Plain and Simple,” attended the ceremony and helped to dedicate a commemorative pink dogwood tree, planted in honor of all Rosies.  The dogwood is symbolic for beauty, democracy and resiliency. The tree was donated by local Newtown Square Nursery, Mostardi’s.
