The Boonton Historical Society & Museum presents: A W.A.S.P. Takes Wing - The Women Airforce Service Pilots Of World War II
Sunday, November 18, 2018, 2:00 PM
At the Boonton Senior Center, 126 North Main Street, Boonton NJ
During World War II, more than one thousand women volunteers completed the WASP military pilot training program. Graduating WASPs piloted every kind of military aircraft, tested new and overhauled airplanes, delivered more than 12,000 planes, and flew over 60,000,000 miles. Thirty-eight of them died serving their country.
Carol Simon Levin tells the story of the amazing WASPs through the eyes of Ann Baumgartner Carl, a Jersey girl who trained as a WASP, became the only American woman to test-fly experimental planes during the war, and the first American woman to fly a jet airplane!

Shelter Our Soldiers (a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization) hopes you will join us for a few hours of fun while also being a part of our cause to support our veterans. What better than some friendly competition of bowling? Novice bowlers should not be anxious and veterans should not feel confident because we will be mixing it up with variations of play to even the field for all player supporters. Light food, bowling shoes and bowling balls will all be provided. Several prizes will be given out over the course of play. The "Big Bowl" welcomes all, so bring your better half, your kids and your friends. It will be an afternoon that is sure to bring lots of smiles, laughs, bragging rights and lasting memories while your support will help make a meaningful impact on the lives of many of our veterans and their respective families.
