Today we join the Madan family in celebrating the family patriarch's 90th birthday! Roberto Madan was penniless when he arrived from Cuba with his wife and children. Today he is a highly respected and admired McDonald's owner/operator who has dedicated much of his time to a charity which provides college scholarships to needy young men and women in his community. Happy Birthday Mr. Madan! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VUHl81ICLys

We are proud to announce that Padron Cigars commemorates their 50th anniversary this month and we congratulate them on this remarkable milestone. This venerable cigar brand was established in 1964 by family patriarch Jose Orlando Padron. Mr. Padron arrived in the US from Cuba in 1961, with no money but with a burning desire to work and prosper. After saving $600 with money earned through carpentry work, Mr. Padron began what is today an internationally reknown brand. In this segment from his Immigrant Archive Project interview, Mr. Padron relives an experience that taught him the value of charity. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6zSqSlmxmsA
