Chivilcoy, Argentina. The local Basque club closed the year with two events.  On December 5th it held a dance performance with the txikis, intermediates and adults.  “It was a great showing by the dantzaris whose show ended with a visit by the Olentzero who passed candy out to the kids,” club sources said.  The directors of the dance group, Nelba, Graciela, and Emilse, also presented a present to each dancer for their work throughout the year that included other performances including one at Semana Vasca in Mar del Plata.
