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.

Caridad: Por favor, me agradaría saber si en la época en que asististe a la Blessed Sacrament Academy en San Antonio la academia era un "boarding school" o internado. No he podido hallar ninguna información al respecto. También me gustaría saber cuántas muchachas cubanas más de los campamentos estuvieron en la academia contigo. Gracias. José Antonio Amaro Reyes.

Hi, Caruca: I just sent you a message. It contains an error (d for c) due to trying to type in a hurry and without glasses. Mi mama solia decir, "la vejez tiene cara de perro" Eso me pasa a mi. Ya no puedo escribir sin lentes. Estoy tratando de ver quien esta en unas de las fotos que tienes en tu pagina. Tengo en duda si soy yo. Sin mas, un abrazo, Blanquita

Hi, Caruda: I would have recognized you anywhere. You look exactly the same! Your daughter is gorgeous. I was a teacher for a few years, but then started working as a psychologist, which is what I still do. Hugs and kisses, Blanquita
