Carrie Ayvar At Museum February 14

LABELLE, FL. -- The answer to who Dr. Anna Darrow was can be learned from noted story teller Carrie-Sue Ayvar at LaBelle Heritage Museum's Wednesday, February 14, free program at LaBelle's Dallas B. Townsend Agricultural Center, 1085 Pratt Boulevard

Carrie-Sue appears throughout Florida in her inimical Chautauqua-style programs where she becomes the subject of her presentation, making that person come alive again at least for the duration of the program. She will become Dr. Anna Darrow (1876 - 1959), only the second female doctor to be licensed to practice medicine in Florida over 100 years ago. 

Listen to Doc Anna, Swamp Doc of Florida as she relates how she braved not only the Everglades that once were but also the haunts of some of Florida's gangs -- possibly even the notorious John Ashley gang -- in her quest to bring medical help to all who needed it.

This free program is made possible by a grant from the Florida Humanities Council enabling smaller communities to present note speakers like Carrie-Sue Ayvar they might not have been able to schedule. 

The Dallas B. Townsend Agricultural Center does have a seating capacity determined by the State Fire Marshall; so, the museum strongly recommends everyone planning to attend this FREE program to go to to get free general admission tickets to insure seats will be available in the event of a "sell out" crowd. 

An advance ticket not only guarantees a seat in case of a capacity crowd but is also an entry for the door prize.
