May 2011 Newsletter!

The May 2011 Newsletter is now online, after a delay related to my general inability to keep things updated.  Inside, you’ll find a list of events we are working on, including an introductory Euskara class and a Basque movie night.

Also, there is a brief report on the recent elections in Spain and, in particular, the Basque Country.  A new party, Bildu, did very well.  What that means for the future of the region is unclear, but it does suggest directions will change.

A PDF of the newsletter can be found here.

As always, many thanks (mik esker!) to Lisa Van De Graaff for putting this together!
