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

Oye, Paquito: Hazte cuenta que el abrazo del sábado en el desayuno fue tambien de cumpleaños mutuo, pues acabo de enterarme que casi nacimos el mismo dia. Así que me uno al cantico de apio verde pa' ti y me lo cantas tambien ya que hoy es el apio verde pa'mí tambien. (Nota bene: que no se entere Melvin para que no se le ocurra decirme AÑEJA a mí tambien.)

Paquito, Muchas felicidades en tu dia, que lo pases muy feliz.... y que cumplas muchos mas.....

Message by Carmencita Romanach | Jul 18th 2010

Paco, el otro dia felicite a Guillermo diciendole Añejo. Tu tienes mas suerte que el, a ti se te puede llamar "AÑOJO" y a la misma vez "AÑEJO". Lo que si es cierto es que solo el buen vino se "AÑEJA". Que los restantes sean mejor que los pasados. Un abrazo...MELVIN
