About us

ChinoLogo_Opt5Ongi Etorri—welcome to your “Euskal Etxea,” your Chino Basque community home.  Our club was founded in 1968 to promote Basque culture.  We hope that you will want to continue to support our club with your time, treasure and talent.

chino clubhouseTIME is essential because we are an organization based on volunteer workers, including those who got together to build our clubhouse in 1986.

When you choose to financially support the Chino Basque Club, hopefully you do so knowing that your money is going for a good cause. When we say that we are striving to promote Basque culture we hope we have earned your trust by what we have tried to provide to date:  a place for all to gather at our clubhouse; support of mus, pilota, & Euskara instruction; a website; sponsor an annual memorial mass; regular monthly meals; continued support of our four dance groups and klika; a monthly newsletter; regularly bringing over of entertainers from the Basque Country, an active membership in the federation of Basque clubs—the North American Basque Organizations, etc.  So your TREASURE goes to two purposes:  infrastructure (keeping this clubhouse up and running) and the promotion of various facets of Basque culture.
