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

I was not aware that I was in the Pedro Pan roster, so this has been a great surprise.

Yes, you are right! He looks like Dalton too. I must confess I had to find Dalton's photo in the internet. I was never a James Bond girl!

Darío,¿conoces el sitio dedicado a los Maristas de Holguín del holguinero y marista Eloy Pérez Montejo? He aquí la dirección: www.siempremarista.com, en caso que lo desconozcas. Él también tiene otro sitio por separado que está dedicado a la ciudad, donde figuraba entre otras cosas El Guayabero de Holguín, Faustino Oramas, cantando "Cuidado con el perro que muerde callao." No sé si recordarás que antes del cambio de gobierno, él rasgaba la guitarra e improvisaba en el parque (Parque Grave de Peralta) que quedaba frente a la Iglesia de San Isidoro.
