Chacabuco, Argentina. At its 2021 General Assembly, Lucia Igarzabal took over the leadership of the Guillermo Larregui Basque Club from Bernardo Indaburu, who has served as the club’s president for two terms since 2016. The new president, daughter of one of the club’s founding members, has a long career on the club’s board of directors, and in 2011, she participated in the Gaztemundu program that focused on “Management and Organization of Cultural Club.”
Besides serving on the club’s board, Lucia Igarzabal also cooks with the “Emakumes” of the club for gastronomic activities as well as teaching “sukaldaritza” to the club’s children as a special part of their Basque dance practices.
Novelties in 2021
Thanks to the new board of directors, members of the Guillermo Larregui Basque Club will work on converting space in the clubhouse to become a “txoko” “a space that will function like “elkarteak” do in Euskal Herria,” Pablo Pavesa, club spokesperson, told EuskalKultura.eus.
In regards to the current health situation, which is far from improving and has worsened in recent days in Argentina, the Euskal Etxea will look at the possibility of carrying out some its gastronomic activities and include home delivery.
The Guillermo Larregui Basque Club also told EuskalKultura.eus how proud they are because in 2021, the Basque club is being the site for the City’s Deliberative Council meetings, while their facilities are undergoing renovations.
Remember that at the end of 2019, the headquarters of the Euskal Etxea was the scene of the official swearing in of authorities after the national elections on October 27th.
