The American Rosie the Riveter Association – Fort Worth Chapter, The Vintage Flying Museum and the Fort Worth Rose Society will be unveiling a new Rosie the Riveter Mural in the Rosie Memorial Rose Garden at Vintage Flying Museum. The Rose Memorial Rose Garden was created in 2019 to honor the Rosie of North Texas. Haltom City Mayor Dr. Troung and Fort Worth Council Member Carlos Flores will be the guest speakers joining local Rosie Families as we unveil our Rosie the Riveter mural. North Richland Hills artists Lisa Henson and her daughter Nicole Damon created this mural to honor North Texas Rosie the Riveters. In addition to Rosie, this mural will feature aircraft that were built right here in North Texas at places like Consolidated Aircraft, North American Aviation and Vought Aircraft.
The event is hosted by the Vintage Flying Museum and the Fort Worth Chapter of the American Rosie the Riveter Association in honor of North Texas Rosie the Riveters. The ceremony will begin at 10am with our special guest speakers. At 11am we will move to the Rosie Garden for a flyover and mural unveiling. The ceremony will be followed with a day of celebrating these ladies and the aircraft they built right here in North Texas. The Airplanes and Coffee organization will be hosting a fly in starting at 8:30am with free coffee and donuts.
The Fort Worth Rose Society will be on hand selling roses and answering all your rose growing questions.

The Rosie the Riveter Memorial Rose Garden at Vintage Flying Museum is a collaborative effort between the American the Riveter Association Fort Worth Chapter, Vintage Flying Museum and the Fort Worth Rose Society. The Memorial Garden was created to honor and recognize the all women who served our country as Rosie the Riveters but especially those who served in North Texas.
The Vintage Flying Museum is a unique “working” museum where visitors are able to see what it takes to “Keep ‘em Flying”
