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

Brother Clemjam: Apio Verde to you! Many blessings. I just read again your profile story which you have expanded on and I'M JUST SO FREAKING PROUD TO BE YOUR FRIEND! I'm glad you are happy, succesful, and kind. In this last year, I've been blessed to have met you and Clem, as well as many other PPs, and this calls for a 'family' celebration. Happy Birthday, Just!

Justo, que lindo tu mensaje. Yo tambien le doy gracias a Nuestro Señor por un dia mas de poder compartir con mis amigos nuevos y de mis seres querido y un dia menos de tolerar otras cosas. Gracias a Dios por un dia mas de empleo y un dia menos de tener que subir al piso 16. And of course one more day of collecting material for our next conversation> HAPPY COCOA WEEKEND!

Justo, que fabuloso que todos estemos tras la pista de Raul! Este network ha sido indiscutiblemente una "sanacion" mental para nosotros, descubriendo entre todos, nuestros amigos de la infancia ...si me entero de algo mas te lo comunico. Kevin me envio un e mail y tambien se lo dejare saber a el. Vamos a ver quien mas resucita del grupo de Chicago e Indiana. Saludos.

Oh, Just, Just! Where forth are thou, Just? Chapter 8 is being written as of right now and it's filled with diversity. Entering into new waters not before explored as if a young person would do! SO.......I have to keep reminding myself that the youth is gone and can only do what can do!!!! Are you confused yet???? :)! How are the waters of the west? I hope not oily! Fill me in when u get back...Un abrazo a Clem y a ti!
