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

Hola...

Sali de Cuba en 1962... no he regresado, aunque tengo en mente hacerlo, con mi familia puertorriquena... tal vez en 2014...

Nací en Santa Clara, y la primera vez que fui a La Habana fue cuando sali del país...mi vida era básicamente entre Santa Clara y Trinidad..

Cuando llegue a Miami con el programa de Catholic Charities y Monsenor Walsh fui enseguida a Kendall, Luego a Opa Locka y eventualmente a Camp Matecumbe... fui parte de un programa piloto para estudiar en una high school, Monsenor Edward Pace HS... de ahi me gradue y fui relocalizado a vivir con una fa milia italoamericana en Cincinnati Ohio, donde estudie en la universidad San Francisco Javier (Xavier Univ... '68)...de ahi me mude a Puerto Rico en 1969... donde sigo... tal vez algunos que compartieron conmigo en ese tiempo puedan comunicarse... me gustaria saber de ellos... que sigan bien... :-)
