Organizers hoping to set Rosie the Riveter record

YPSILANTI TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Organizers of an effort to save portions of the historic Detroit-area factory where Rosie the Riveter once worked are trying to set a new Rosie record.

Save the Bomber Plant activists on Wednesday plan to set the world record for the largest number of Rosie the Riveters in one place.

There's no current record, but in order to establish one there must be a turnout of at least 250 appropriately dressed Rosies.

Those interested in participating are asked to wear a red bandanna with large white polka dots; red socks; and dark blue coveralls or denim overalls and a short sleeve denim shirt.

It's part of an ongoing effort to raise the millions necessary to save part of the former Willow Run bomber plant in Ypsilanti Township.
