Her name isn't Rosie but she is the genuine article; a riveter from WWII who worked on B-17 bombers made at Lockheed's Burbank Defense Plant in California.

Kasson resident Helen Leqve is 95 years old - she'll be 96 on Christmas Day.

She spoke to hundreds of Byron students from kindergarten through fifth grade at an assembly Nov. 10 at the Primary School.

At the beginning of the assembly, Cub Scouts from Troop 42 brought in the flags and they were followed by several veterans who were able to attend the event.

After posting the colors and the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance, the program including the National Anthem, kindergartners singing "You're a Grand Old Flag," students reading letters to veterans thanking them for their service, all children singing "My Country 'Tis of Thee," and the featured speaker, Helen Leqve.

Veterans at the assembly received a standing ovation from the crowd of hundreds who attended.
