Some of you probably remember the old "Hideaway Lounge" in San Pedro. Joyce Harris (Ms June of the Calendar Girls fame) owned and operated the Hide-A-Way for years. In the resturant up stairs, there were 6 special chairs, each with a hand painted picture of island personalities as follows; Trish Carter,Norman, Casey,Charlene, "The Queen" AND PIASANO ! The chairs are made of mahognay by the Minonites, R.B. Mernitz and his beautiful wife Judy, did the actual work of cutting out the designs and painting the charaters pictures on each chair.
You may not know that Piasano was a strong supporter of children getting an education. He and the late Trish Carter,
worked very hard to help families in San Pedro achieve that goal. There were several "Chair Parties" at the Hide-A-Way and Piasano would show up, walk around with his chair and tell the guest "Look at my chair, that'll be $5.00 please"! All these chairs hold a lot of history and fond memories for a lot of people. Piasano's chair will come with a great picture of the "Man" suitable for framing.
There will be a live auction on Sunday 3-12-06 at B.C.s around 4;30PM (Belize time) There will also be a silent auction for thoes who can not be there in person. You can submit, via email, a minimun bid and a maximum bid on any or all the chairs. Silent bids must be received no later than 6:00PM CST, Friday 3-10-06.
