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

Angelo, esperando que estes bien, me he demorado en contestarte pues he estado bastante cumplicado,pienso en el weekend llamarte que tengo mas tiempo. Te dire que Kendall esta donde esta el Parque Indian Hammor, si vienes por la 117 Avenida del S.W. dobla derecha creo que es la 84 St. antes de llegar a la estacion de Bomberos lo unico que te vas a encontrar el edificio lo que era el dormitorio de Juan Jose, Tambien estan lo que eran las clases y si recuerdas la ultima era el dormitorio de Olegario donde nosotros estabamos, todo lo demas lo derrumbaron. De Florida City no se la direccion pues hace años que no voy por ahi. Te voy a mandar un email para el proximo desayuno, creo que sera en Oct.17. Te llamo en el week end. Saludos

Wow, Lito, what you tell me is another example of how life has a way of making just retribution sooner or later.-- By the way, I had a cousin in Spain named Angel whom we called Lito. He passed much too young. I hadn't heard of anyone else using that nickname. --We are here to tell the stories and to heal in the process. Those emotions, experiences, hurtful or joyful, have been waiting to come out for a long time, but we may not have been ready until we could make sense of it all somehow. So, by all means, keep the stories coming! Yolanda

Angelo, esos tios tuyos ¿de verdad que eran cubanos? Mijo, de niña yo siempre oí decir que en una casa cubana cuando se cierra la puerta de la calle, toda la casa es dormitorio. Parece que ellos no sabían éso. Como no hay mal que por bien no venga, todo cogió el curso del destino y aquí estás haciendo el cuento. Es un gusto conocerte. Yolanda
