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

That’s the one! You would think that after I scared him of, I would at least get a thank you. But noooooooooooooooooooooo.

Yes, la Santa Valdivia me envio un scanned copy. I know I wish I could have been there although I heard it was so hot que estaba insoportable. I could have gone but the drive kills me and I have so many things to do at home that it would only get further behind. I'm trying to sort out and eliminate all paperwork and documents that I have from the years of self employment. It's a lot of accounting and if these business get audited, I have to be able provide all the financial info. Of course, I have spent too much time on the computer and drove to another town today for a barbecue and have not done as much as I should have.

Carmencita. Ayer estuve con ustedes en pensamiento y porque parece que algunos tambien pensaron en mí. Marcos me envió varias fotos. Ahí te he visto y reconocido enseguida. ¡Qué grupo tan especial de niños volviendo a encontrarse al otro lado del tiempo!

Carmencita, tu foto esta divina. Que vestido tan espectacular. Eso luce muy divertido, no creo que la pasaste muy mal esos 22 años en España. Hablando de divertido, que bien la pasamos hoy. Un beso, Carmen
