WHT Big Rosie Day

A huge thank you to everyone who participate in our Big Rosie Day on Saturday.

The event was a fabulous success with more than 220 Rosies counted, a new Pan Pacific Record for the greatest number of women in one place dressed as Rosie the Riveter. And we have had official confirmation, New Zealand did indeed weep at news of our record.

Thanks to all our wonderful volunteers who made scarfs, participated in organising and assisted on the day.

Thank you to Dr Geraldine Bugoslowski for being our MC at the event and for presiding over The Big Rosie Day record count!

And thank you to the very talented Stragglers who entertained the crowd while all the Rosies registered.

Here are some photos of the event.
