This month we will be remembering the 1980s.

It was decade of Cabbage Patch Kids, Rubik’s Cubes and PacMan.

“Back to the Future,” “Dirty Dancing” and “Flashdance” were defining films.

The Berlin Wall went down and the Chino Basque Club went up.

Bring your favorite music to dance to Duran Duran, Tears of Fears, The Cars and more.  Do you remember Running Man? The Sprinkler? The Moonwalk?

Also, bring a photo(s) from the 1980s of yourself, your friends, the club…


The Udaleku Committee is still in need of the following:

1)  Help with transportation for the weeks beginning June 26 through July 7, 2017;

2)  Food donations for 100 children as well as teachers & aides;

3)  Kitchen crews (cooking and serving)—sign up sheets will be available at the Club dinner on May 20.

If you can help in any way please contact:

Maite Maisterrena at (909) 240-5159 

or ask to sign up Saturday night, May 20 at the club dinner.


Dance practices are up and running on Sunday afternoons at the Club at 4 p.m.

If your children are between the ages of 4 and 12,

we would love to see them be a part of the group.

Xori Ttipiak range from 4-6 years, Euskaldun Izarrak ages 7-9 years,

and Dantzari Onestak ages 10-12 years.

A film produced by Begoña Echeverria and
Marianna Etcheverria was shown at our Club dinner in April.
It is an overview of the senseless bombing of Gernika, Picasso’s painting and how it is that today the Club has a descendant from that infamous tree.
