Lissette's Story

I am Lissette Alvarez and I arrived to the US September 13th 1961 I was at the Kendall camp for 3 weeks and sent to St. Mary's Home, an orphanage in Dubuque, Iowa. After 10 months in Iowa I was sent to 2 foster homes and finally

returned to the Florida City camp in 1962. There I stayed at the Aguirre family home until my parents, well known Cuban singers Olga Chorens and Tony Alvarez left Cuba in 1963 My family moved to Puerto Rico in 1965 and I lived in San Juan for 14 years where I have had a singing career. Today I live in Miami and am married to Willy Chirino, also a Pedro Pan and we have 6 children.

Recuerdo que en Cuba una tarde fui a jugar a las munecas contigo. Mi madre me llevo y estuvo hablando con tu mama. A la hora de irnos tu y yo estabamos perdidas. No entendiamos nada y aunque la pasamos bien no volvimos a reunirnos para jugar. Tendriamos como unos 7 anos. No se si tu te acuerdas de algo mas. Yo estuve en Kendall desde Junio 10 al 4 de Julio que me relocalizaron a un orfanato en Denver. Carinos, Chary

Lissette, I want to know if there is a site where Pedro pans can meet others particularly because many of us have lost our mate. Do you know of where we can find other Pedro pans?

I am so glad to see that you joined this Pedro Pan site. I have reconnected with people that I went to school with in Puerto Rico and it has been a very pleasant experience. Even though I have only been to one of the events, I stay in touch with a few of the other Pedro Pans whom I went to school with. I met you a few times in Puerto Rico, probably around 1966-67 when you were dating Chucho. My cousin Tony Mendez and his wife Cachita, who used to play the guitar, lived across the street from Chucho in Hato Rey and even to this day I keep a polaroid picture of you and I at a party in their backyard. I have always admired you as a singer and a humanitarian. Last time I saw you in person was when you performed at the Fountainebleau about 6 years ago. I was sitting close to your Mom and Blanquita Amaro. Anyway I now live in Miami Beach. Best, Joseph

Hello Lissette! How nice to have you among the Pedro Pans in this Network!I remember watching you on TV in Cuba and singing El Ratoncito Miguel with you and your mom. My mom used to copy all your hairdos on me. Memories!!! A ver si embullas a Willy a que se registre también.
