The Consulate of Mexico in El Paso presented awards to members of the Charros Association of the region for their participation in the Charra exhibition held in the diplomatic house recently.
The consul Juan Acereto, of Political and Economic Affairs, made the delivery during a ceremony carried out in a restaurant located in the commercial corridor in the surrounding area of UTEP.
After thanking for the distinction given, Alicia Rodríguez, president of the Damas Charras Committee of El Paso and Las Cruces (CDCH), did the same by honoring the remarkable men and women who have preserved the Mexican traditions, especially Charrería, this, within the celebration of its first anniversary as a group.
Due to its relevance in the different historical events, from independence to the post-revolutionary era, the Charro figure is considered as the personified emblem of Mexico, and for that, it is internationally recognized. The objective of the CDCH is to unite the Charrería art at all levels, in both cities, and integrate them as a family as well as attract new people to the Lienzo Charros exhibitions.
