We appreciate their commitment and hard work that contributed to the betterment of the Basque Center and the Boise Basque Community.

Reservations are not required for the dinner. However, in the interest of approximating the correct quantities of food, we are asking members to call into the reservation line at (208) 572-0604 or via email with your name and the number in your party. You will not be turned away that night as long as your 2012 membership is paid in full, but it will help the cooking staff to prepare if you call in ahead of time.

To take advantage of our free babysitting service, please call in your children’s names and ages to the reservation line 1 (208) 572-0604 no later than January 25.
