Ar­gen­tinian Cel­e­bra­tions

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

On Tues­day May 26th, the Em­bassy of the Ar­gen­tine Repub­lic in Saint Lu­cia cel­e­brated the 205th an­niver­sary of the May Revo­lu­tion (May 25th, 1810), to com­mem­o­rate the events of two cen­turies ago which led to the first au­ton­o­mous gov­ern­ment in Buenos Aires and cul­mi­nated with the eman­ci­pa­tion of Ar­gentina from Span­ish colo­nial rule.

The re­cep­tion, held at the Saint Lu­cia Golf and Coun­try Club, was hosted by Am­bas­sador Luis Martínez Thomas and hon­oured by the pres­ence of H.E. the Gover­nor Gen­eral, high gov­ern­ment au­thor­i­ties, diplo­matic corps, and other dis­tin­guished guests.

The event fea­tured live folk­lore and tango per­for­mances by dancers Os­car Ca­ballero and Karel Wol­berg, and mu­si­cians Lorena Guil­lén and Ale­jan­dro Rutty, fol­lowed by a pho­to­graphic ex­hi­bi­tion of artist Palmiro Bedeschi and, fi­nally, a wine tast­ing ac­com­pa­nied by tra­di­tional 'em­panadas' (Ar­gen­tine meat pies). The Em­bassy of Ar­gentina wishes to take this op­por­tu­nity to thank all the guests for their pres­ence, and es­pe­cially "CPJ Wines" for the gen­er­ous do­na­tion of "Trapiche" wines from the well known Ar­gen­tine win­ery.
