Dear Pedro Pan Brothers and Sisters
The sun breaks through the early morning mist warming the skies over the San Gabriel Mountains...
just in time for the festivities!
Over 300 Pedro Pan, family and friends gathered this afternoon at the Hacienda Don
Francisco in Acton, California
for the second annual reunion of the Cuban Kids from the 60’s Exodus at the Gaviña Family Ranch.
A relaxing afternoon to catch
up with old friends, meet new ones, and partake in the activities throughout the day, enhanced by the picturesque Southern
California setting. The horse rides for the kids and the Paso Fino ridding exhibition were the hit of the day.
Of course let’s not
forget the delicious Cuban delicacies prepared by master chef Tony Hernandez and his crew. It was outstanding!
Sergio Diaz kicked off the
brief formal program, introducing the Gaviña Family who welcomed all to Hacienda Don Francisco.
Ramon Coro and Enrique Garcia
presented the Gaviña family with a domino table and a set of dominos, as Estela Bueno, Irene Martinez Ceballos, and Angie
Rodriguez presented flowers to the Gaviña ladies as a token of appreciation for their hospitality.
