Message from Pedro Pan Eloísa Echazábal. Below the link to the Miami Dade College announcement dated July 8th regarding the upcoming Freedom Tower exhibit about the Cuban exile experience. This exhibit will be launched in mid-September. The first exile focus will be on the Pedro Pan exodus. Most of us who reunited with our parents in Miami remember visiting the Freedom Tower for the services the U.S. government made available to the newly arriving Cuban exiles. The Pedro Pan exhibit will last about two years. Miami Dade College and The Miami Herald Media Company invited me to collaborate with them when the plans were first developed about two years ago, and I was ecstatic with the opportunity. Also collaborating with their memorabilia and photos are Operation Pedro Pan Group Inc.organization, Barry University Archives and Special Collections, University of Miami Cuban Heritage Collection and Florida International University Libraries. As soon as the next official announcement comes out, I will forward. In the meantime, I would like to let you know that a "collecting day" is being planned for Saturday, July 26th, from 12 to 4 p.m. at the Freedom Tower. This is the day when Pedro Pans will have the opportunity to bring memorabilia regarding our Pedro Pan days to be loaned to the exhibit. Required receipts and documentation will be available there. Courtesy parking on the open lot across the street south of the Tower. Entrance on N.E. 5th street. Just let the attendant know you are coming to the Tower to bring your items. This is a great opportunity to showcase our experience. Again, as additional announcements are released, I'll forward.

How can we leave a public message for all the Pedro Pans that were sent to Catholic Childrens Home in Alton, Illinois. I was part of the first group of 4 sets of brothers/sisters that arrived there in April, 1961 and we would like to be able to find the rest of the people from our original group as well as from the other groups who went there.

Thank you so much, I am so ready to finish my site and waiting to upload the rest of the pictures. This is absolutely amazing, and I am so very excited to see what responses I get. You have all done a magnificent job at getting all of us to contact each other. Who was going to say that 48 years later we can actually look for names and dates? Wow!!Unbelievable!!!! Thank you so very much. Niurka (Monfort/Gutierrez) Strong

Pedro, Los felicito for este forum que nos da la oportunidad de conectarnos con otros PedroPanes. Se que la labor es monumental, pero quisiera hacer una sugerencia. La lista no incluye, a algunos amigos que ya no estan con nosotros, pero es imposible saber quienes son, podrian incluir a esos hermanos PedroPanes? Tambien quisiera darles el nombre de algunos Pedropanes que no encuentro en la lista: Maden Gispert, Kendall, vino en 1962, no se fue con nosotros a Opa-Locka, creo que fue para Oregon? Un amigo de apellido Cerezo, de Kendall, creo que llego en 1962, tampoco fue a Opa-Locka, no se adonde fue. Muchas gracias.

I arrived on July 27, 1962 and have already registered. On the same flight arrived my cousin, Fernando de Aguero (two dots over the "u"). His name is mispelled on the database as "Azuedo"...Unfortunately,I have not been able to contact him so he can go about correcting his name. I don't know if you take the liberty of doing so, in an effort to have the most correct record possible, but figured I'd let you know. I also want to express my gratitude to the Miami Herald, to you and all the staff involved with this project. Now in my second career as a history teacher, I can truly appreciate the wonderful thing you have all done with this database. It will be a treasure for the future and one the Herald and all of you will be lauded for, for decades to come, by many new Americans and by free generations in a democratic Cuba.
