If These Logs Could Talk

will feature living history dramatists, Carol and Frank Jarboe, as ...

"The Resurrectionists!"

Carol Jarboe as Maggie      Frank Jarboe body snatcher

The Jarboes, will portray two warm and witty characters from Colonial times. 

They will explain the tools, techniques, and risks of being a "body snatcher." 

This "noble profession" contributed in an unsung role to modern medicine by supplying cadavers

to the early Medical Schools and research laboratories. 

They preferred to be called Resurrectionists rather than Body Snatchers. 

Yes, it was against the law, hence a dangerous occupation.

Admission is only $5.00 for the presentation.  Home baked cookies and lemonade, of course. 

Please bring a chair and join your friends and neighbors on the breezeway at Wynnewood at 2:00 for a fascinating presentation.
