Rosie's Transom is Complete!

The transom is up on Rosie! Definitely making some headway.

Jenn works to loosen a galvanized nail on Rosie Parks' existing transom - love the ponytail flying!
Community members are welcome to help work on the restoration on Saturdays from 10am - 3. Must be 16 or older or accompanied by adult. Women encouraged. Pre-registration is not required, but helpful. Email during the week at or stop by our welcome center for more details.

The galvanized nails from the transom, like everything that is being removed from Rosie, will be saved and either cataloged, or given as mementos to our donors and volunteers working on the project.
