Rosies and B-17 show up for weekend

Rosie Grace, three Rosebuds and some visitors ring bells commemorating workers in World War II.

The Museum hosted a bell ringing September 2 that was part of a national thanks to all Rosie the Riveters who helped in World War II.

The Liberty Foundation brought in its B-17 Flying Fortress Madras Maiden for the weekend but some bad luck kept it grounded. People were still able to admire the historic aircraft and take tours.


The weather did not deter fans who are waiting to get a ride on the Madras Maiden Saturday morning.
