What I neglected to say below is that she was part of the Operacion! My recollection is that she and her parents did reconnect a few years later -- and she went to Miami, I believe, as well, where she stayed until college in Washingoton, DC

I went to Dunbarton College with a girl whose father, I believe, was a doctor and friend of Castro. I am drawing a blank on her name but the Dunbarton College should be significant. If you happen to have a list, I would recognize the name. I was at Dunbarton from l968-l969 and then transferred so I lost touch.

Just to let you know that I reconnected with Angel Canete whom I hadn't seen since we both were in Saginaw, Michigan back in the early 60's. The Pedro Pan dinner/dance on Saturday night was a most enjoyable experience and I recommend to all those that did not or could not attend to head down to Miami next year and try it out. For me it was a positive, emotional experience reconnecting with friends of long ago, and catching up to realize that all 14,048 of us share a common bond that automatically places us in an unique situation. This Pedro Pan from Washington State is looking forward to next year.

My name is Jose Arrojo. I am 47 years old and I live in South Florida. My older brother Jaime Arrojo Aguila arrived in Florida City at the age of 10 on Saturday, March 31, 1962 as part of Pedro Pan. The database has him as relocated to "CWB Florida City." Actually, I was told by my parents, now in their late 70's and 80's, respectively, that my brother was placed with a foster family in California for 9 months until the entire family arrived in Miami in October 1962. My brother died in a drowning accident in Chicago, where we lived at the time, later in 1967. I was three years old at the time of his death, having been born in the US four months after my parents arrived. I am trying to piece together my brother's early time in the US. How can I connect to others who may have known my brother then or may have even been placed with him in California. My elderly parents have never wanted to discuss this; earlier in life they could not do it without tears, now thier memory has faded. Regards, Jose Arrojo

Big weekend for Pedro Pans in Miami as they attended a reunion and gala dinner on Miami Beach on Saturday. The annual event this year marked the 50th anniversary of the start of the childrens'exodus. Former U.S. Senator - and Pedro Pan Mel Martinez - attended the event. And on Friday, there was also a special event planned by Carmen Valdivia, Guillermo Paz and Carmen Romanach of the Operation Pedro Pan Group - it was an emotional tour of the three major camps - Florida City, Kendall and Matecumbe. There was much television coverage of the event. On Sunday night, GentTV aired a Pedro Pan special. Also in town this weekend were Chris and Dennis Baker, the sons of Jim Baker,one of the fathers of Operation Pedro Pan. The two were interviewed by Eloisa Echazabal, as part of her work to preserve the history of Operation Pedro Pan. So to keep the mood going, let us know if you reconnected with someone you knew from the camps during the reunion.
