Pat Johnson Featured At Museum Meeting March 3

LABELLE, FL.-- Mary Ann Driggers Kirkland, famed midwife, entrepreneur and matriarch of the Upper Caloosahatchee Valley know to many as "Aunt Polly Powers" will be the focus of Patricia Newell Johnson's presentation at LaBelle Heritage Museum's March 3 monthly program meeting celebrating Women's Heritage Month at the museum located at 360 North Bridge Street immediately across the street from the Harold P. Curtis Honey Co. at 7 o'clock. 

The meeting is open to the public. Parking at the museum is limited, and Rene Curtis Pratt of Curtis Honey Co. has said overflow parking will be available at 355 North Bridge Street.

Ms. Newell-Johnson says the program, which will feature a slide show of photos of Mary Ann Kirkland and a number of her distaff descendants will center on this almost legendary figure and how she and her many descendants helped define LaBelle's heritage.
