Kern County Basque Club Mass
This weekend would have marked the Kern County Basque Club’s 49th Annual Basque Festival that always coincides with Memorial Day Weekend. As with many other festivities, they had decided to cancel this year’s event in an abundance of caution. There is no picnic, however, Aita Antton will still celebrate mass with the intentions of the Kern County Basque community in mind, as well as remembering their dearly departed. Mass will begin at 8am (PST) and will be livestreamed from the Artzai Ona Facebook Page. You will find the link to the missal there as well.

Kantari Eguna to be Celebrated Virtually
Our friends at the Mendiko Euskaldun Cluba have reached out regarding this year’s picnic/Kantari Eguna. They have decided to cancel this year’s event; an especially difficult decision given that this year would have marked their 40th anniversary. Not wanting the date to go unnoticed, they have decided to celebrate Kantari Eguna virtually. In order to do this, they have enlisted the help of Mikaela Goicoechea, NABO’s Music Program Director. The idea is for anyone wishing to participate, to video their song, and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org so that Mikaela can compile these and create one big Kantari Eguna video out of them. Deadline to submit your song is June 30, 2021. Let’s help them celebrate their 40th anniversary in style, and send them a song as a gift!
