I just wanted to share a wonderful lunchtime experience I had on 29 May 02. I currently
work at MacDill AFB, Tampa, Florida and so at lunch time, decided to walk to the AAFES
Base Exchange to see about getting some graduation presents. Well, on the way back to
work, I was walking down the mall hallway in the BX, passing all of the different vendors
with their wonderful things, when Ay Ya Yi!....there is was! The Panama Canal Museum
Booth, with one of the Past Panama Canal Society Presidents, Faith Brundage along with
Kathy Egolf! Well, I can't begin to tell you how excited I was to be standing before all
of that wonderful Panama Canal and Panama Stuff. It was like for just a moment there, I
had gone to heaven....well you know...HOME! The ladies told me that they were in the Mall
Complex of the MacDill Base Exchange that week to promote the Panama Canal Museum. And, as
an added note, they will be at the Panama Canal Society of Florida Reunion next month with
this display and a lot more! So...if you have stuff to donate to them and want to
contribute, you HAVE to go by and see them!!!!!!!
Needless to say, that day was great! I bought a wonderful Cook Book called "Cocina
Panamena" that is in English and in Espanol as well as a new "Chacara" to
take to the Reunion with me. I did not get much to eat but I sure felt "full"
when I returned to work. Just what I needed to complete my day!!! So everyone going to the
Reunion, take a few minutes to go see them....it will be really worth it!!!!!
