Udaleku Past and Present, Gaztemundu 2013, and Everything you wanted to know about Paella



This weekend the Kern County Basque club successfully concluded another Udaleku hosting 102 children. The final performance took place on Friday night, June 28 and dinner was served to over 400 people. Congratulations Kern County and everyone involved in this year's camp organization! According to reports on Facebook, a great time was had by all, but most importantly a ton was learned about our Basque heritage! Zorionak!
