Organizers of Save the Willow Run Bomber Plant will attempt to break the current Guinness World Record for gathering the most Rosie the Riveters on Oct. 24.

“Michigan is where the original Rosie the Riveter came from and we have to keep that Guinness record here in Michigan,” said Congresswoman Debbie Dingell, co-chair of the organizing committee.

Last year, 776 Rosies gathered at Willow Run and that set a Guinness record, but the record was lost to Rockin' Rosies of Richmond with 1,084 Rosies in California in August 2015.
