November is the month for all of us at Oak Ridges Retirement, to remember and honour the sacrifices made by our Veterans, and those who were involved in the battles to keep our country strong and democratic.
Have you heard of the Bomb Girls? The Bomb Girls, were women who worked in munitions factories all across the country. Many of these women had husbands who were fighting in the war, and these ladies worked to earn money to raise their families and sustain their lives at home. These were dangerous and non-glamorous jobs, but were essential in assisting the government produce munitions.
Oak Ridges Retirement Community is so proud of our own Bomb Girl, Phyllis (pictured here with author and speaker Barbara Dickson ). Phyllis was also featured in the documentary, Bomb Girls, that was released last year.
Thank you for your service Phyllis !
