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

Yes Susie, our first meeting was indeed bitter sweet but very spiritually and emotionally rewarding for both of us. When we have our kids in the same room sharing our past and their vision of this period of our youth, it should be interesting. I will make a journal of my impressions. Thank you Susie.

Susy, Thanks for posting Peggy Guarch' obituary. Amazing how God called her to His side on the 50th Anniversary of the Pedro Pan celebration. May she rest in peace. My condolences to the family.

Hi Susy, thanks for your welcome message. In Puerto Rico I went to Madre Cabrini and La Providencia, as well as the Conservatory of Music. I've reconnected with many of my friends from Madre Cabrini through Facebook. And I recently found out that my supervisor's dad came over through Pedro Pan too. It's a small world after all. :)
