The annual convention of the North American Basque Organizations will be hosted by the Southern California Basque Club in Chino, Calif. this coming weekend.

Gatibu, a rock band from the Basque Country, and the Jean Flesher Band, from Salt Lake City, will provide music for the event, which starts Saturday July 2 with a barbecue steak dinner at Brinderson Hall at the Chino Fairgrounds.

A video history of the Southern California Basque Club which is celebrating its 70th anniversary will be shown and many of the club’s long time members will be honored. Gatibu will play after dinner.
