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.

Estimada Casandra: According to the Adoption Agencies, Orphanages and Maternity Homes: An Historical Directory - Volumes 1 & 2, there has never been a John F. Kennedy Home in NY. There is however Lt. Joseph P. Kennedy, Jr. Home for Children at 1770 Stillwell Avenue, Bronx, NY, 10469. The home was operated by the Missionary Sisters of the Third Order of St. Francis. It operated from 1950 to 1979. The site is now owned and used by United Cerebral Palsy of New York City, Inc. There is by the way a Kids of Kennedy Alumni Yahoo Group that might be useful to you in locating your friend Diana and her brothers:
