NABO Members

It is always gratifying to have new members joining up with our NABO federation because it shows that new communities are forming institutions to gather Basques & their friends together.  Furthermore, it also shows that there is an ongoing willingness on the part of Basque organizations to work together to promote Basque culture.

Welcome to our newest member, the Basque Club of Quebec in Montreal.  ONGI ETORRI--BIEN VENUE
