As for Elia Aguilar, everyone agreed that she was the eye of the village when she entered the dance hall being the first in the hall and the last to leave. Together this couple has contributed to San Pedro by offering the very first self-service shop and store known as Martha’s Store, a first class bar establishment the Skin Diver’s Club, and also Martha’s Hotel. The couple has also given to San Pedro wonderful children who are all contributing members of this society as is his grandson Miguel “Mike” Perez, who is Person of the Year 2014.
Talk about a great party it included music by Oscar Aguilar, La Voz de Oro de San Pedro, who serenaded all present with the golden oldies. And listen to this, part of the original accordion band at the wedding, was also present providing the dance music, with Ovido himself behind the accordion. What a way to celebrate fifty years of union, companionship, joys and sorrows, and love!
