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.

I'm going to recommend to Susy that she needs to start drinking parsley tea.

Hi, Estrella! I don't think I know Maria de la Milera but I know who does, so I will pass your message on! I've been very busy lately, at home and at work but I hope someone in CF brainstorms some kind of get-together in the near future. But this time, we'll keep it a secret from the guy with the southern draw in Tally!!! Nah, ha ha!

Hello, Estrella: I recently met Mercy and Frank at Justo's home. Actually, I believe you were the one keeping us up w/the score of the UM game (which of course we lost). I'm glad you connected with Manuel and hopefully, you'll be able to see him in person. Regards.

Que alegria ser el primero en decirte "Bienvenida" a estas paginas. Por tu hermana y Frank, se mucho de ti, tu eres la numero 35 en la Florida Central, asi que ojala pronto tenga el gusto de conocerte personalmente. Nosotros estamos en Orlando desde el 68', asi que quizas nos conocemos. Cuidate-----------JAM
