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

Mercedes y Jay, acabamos de leer el mensaje que Susy Rodriguez escribio sobre el "book signing" en Alexandria, VA del libro The Red Umbrella escrito por nuestra hija Christina. A lo mejor ustedes han leido en mensajes de otros Pedro Panes que The Red Umbrella esta considerada como una novela historica (historical fiction novel) sobre una niña de 14 años que vino sola a USA a traves de la Operacion Pedro Pan y fue relocalizada a Nebraska. Por un par de mensajes entre ustedes dos ayer vemos que ustedes viven en el area de Washington DC. Nosotros estamos "tagging along" en este "book signing tour/vacationes" y nos encantaria poder conocerlos. El "book signing" es este sabado, 26 de junio, a las 2:00PM en la tienda HOORAY FOR BOOKS que esta localizada en el 1555 King Street, Alexandria VA 22314. Por los mensajes de ustedes vemos que conocen y estan en contacto con otros Pedro Panes que viven en el area, por favor si pueden, pasenle esta informacion a ellos y a otros amigos y familiares que vivan cerca de Wahington DC/Alexandria VA. Nuestra direccion electronica es deldiaz@mrmiami.com por si quieren comunicarse directamente con nosotros. Saludos para los dos y nos encantaria poder verlos y conocerlos este fin de semana, Esperanza y Delfin Diaz

Querido Jesus: Mirando por la pagina web encontre tu nombre y veo que vives en Washington, DC. Yo vivo por Fredericksburg, Virginia y tengo una hija que vive en DC, asi que estoy por alla muy amenudo. Seria lindo podernos encontrar. Hay un grupo de Pedro Panes en DC. En que parte vives? Por favor, escribeme y nos ponemos en contacto. Con mucho cariño, tu hermana Pedro Pan. Mercy

Hi, Jay....is it 'white' enough yet? My sister-in-law who lives up there tolde me yesterday that a snow plow got stuck by her house and caught on fire. They called 911 and the firetruck couldn't even get up the hill so the firemen walked up!!! And so more to come this Tuesday. Good luck and keep warm. Cariños.

Message by Susy Rodriguez | Feb 7th 2010

Jay, thank you for the Belén contact. Carmencita and I just did two more interviews today. We now have eight! "For posterity," as you said. Ciao for now. Cariños, Eloísa

Message by Eloisa Echazabal | Feb 7th 2010

Querido Jay: Como soy tan "brillante" ayer te puse una notica y me la mandé a mi propio e-mail. Imagínate viniste a Miami y conociste a "la créme de la créme" Eloisa & Carmencita....Me alegran tus triunfos y tu forma de ver la vida...definitivamente fuimos parte importante de la historia de Cuba y no lo sabíamos......Gracias a Dios ahora tenemos este "network" donde hemos encontrado tantos y tantos hermanos que no sabíamos de ellos y otros que se han vuelto hermanos muy queridos sin que siquiera nos hayamos visto por primera vez. Me encanta Washington DC., he ido tres veces y siempre me gusta volver. De qué parte de Cuba eres? Recibe un fuerte abrazo de tu hermana, Otmara

Hi, Jay...how are you? It's been a while since we spoke in Miami...now you are back in DC and I'm in Central Florida... Eloisa sent me your email but I misplaced it so I should have it now after you get my message.....Look forward to talking to you soon.
