Every June 20, in our country, the memory of General Manuel Belgrano is evoked, on the date of his passage to immortality. Said evocation is made within the framework of an immovable holiday within the official calendar, to reaffirm the identity as Argentines, and also, renew the commitment in the defense of the interests of the Homeland.
In this framework, this Monday, June 20, in the Plaza de la Bandera, the official ceremony for the aforementioned day took place. In addition, it should be noted that, in the morning hours, on the mast of the Police Headquarters, Mayor Luis Castellano and authorities raised the Argentine flag.

Then, in the afternoon, in the Amancay neighborhood, we returned in person, since we couldn’t do such a beautiful act for two years. Many people always congregate here and the pandemic had prohibited us from doing it in person as we like.
The mayor remarked that “it is nice to enjoy the public space, the meeting, the fair and each one of the local music groups. Today the schools of the city were also present and accompanying this moment”.
