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. http://www.mdc.edu/main/news/articles/2014/07/mdcand_the_miami_herald_media_company_to.aspx

Hi Ismael, I am going to try again to see if you receive this message. I deleted the message that I sent a few days ago (about the day I left Cuba and being in the pecera) that I shared with you earlier. Again, what an unexpected pleasure to be in touch with you after so many years! Rosy

Hi Ismael: How can I forget you! You almost became my brother-in-law! My sister is doing fine. She lives in Tallahassee and has a PHD. She is charge of the Spanish Department there. My parents both died. I am still married to Yoly. Have three children and six grandchildren. You may have seen one of my granddaughters, Bebe Wood in the program NBC The New Normal, certainly not in the style of I love Lucy. In a few days she starts filming a comedy with Robin Williams called a Friggin Christmas Miracle. We will be moving back to Florida in May. Now we are in Nebraska. Un fuerte abrazo, mi hermano
