As soon as the Basque club presents the necessary documentation, the city will provide them with a facility. According to club sources, the facility will not only accommodate club activities, but it is especially well-located, near Liceo 3, high school. “This will surely allow us to be closer to the community,” club member, Angel Cameto, said to EuskalKultura.com.
San Jose, Uruguay. Officially recognized by the Basque Government in December 2010, and after having changed locales due to not having their own clubhouse, finally in 2017 the San Joseko Euskaldunak Taldea will have its own place to hold meetings and to continue Basque classes and dancing lessons.
The local, located on Massini Street, in the area of the Arroyo Mallada mall, will be turned over to the club in perfect condition, so that the club can start using it right after signing the note. “Some painting and close some openings will need to ba made, but they are giving it to us in good condition. It is a medium-sized place that fits our needs as an institutional headquarters, as well as a center of diffusion. It is located in a neighborhood that is very close to a high school that we hope to become involved with,” Angel Cameto explained.
Even if a date has yet to be set, Cameto says that the paperwork would be signed soon. They are also planning an inaugural event, since it “is such a special event.”
