Women of World War II: On the Front Lines & the Home Front
During World War II, American women took on many new roles, both in the military and as civilians. One of the civilian avenues was through the American Red Cross Clubmobile program, which was essentially a mobile club, featuring doughnuts, coffee, and good old American girl-next-door friendliness, all served up at the front lines in Europe, Southeast Asia, India, and Australia. Learn more about the Clubmobile program and all the ways in which American women helped win the war on Saturday, March 10, 2018 at 2 p.m. Please call the Whiting Public Library at 659-0269 x110 to register for this free program.
