Sixth annual Denio Basque Dinner to be held

Do you enjoy delicious Basque food, Basque cultural dancing, and a good time with family and friends?  

Then come out to Denio, Nevada, on April 23, for the 6th Annual Jackson Mountain Homemakers Basque Dinner from 5 p.m.-7 p.m. at the Denio Community Hall. 

Featuring homemade lamb stew, chorizo, Basque beans, potatoes, salad, bread, wine and desserts, the night will include a raffle and live auction with entertainment provided by the Winnemucca Irrintzi Dancers. 

Tickets are available at the door for $15 (ages 13+), $8 (ages 6-12) and ages 5 & under free. 

The Jackson Mountain Homemakers is a non-profit organization of local women dedicated to helping the community, local rural schools, and those in need.  

Founded in 1978, all profits earned by the Jackson Mountain Homemakers go directly to helping those in our community.

In the early years of the organization, one of the founding members, Dale DeLong, made denim quilts by repurposing worn-out jeans for beautiful, tough, and very practical handmade quilts. 

Members of the group would help finish and tie the quilts to be raffled off to raise funds. 

In keeping with this tradition, the door prize for the 6th Annual Denio Basque Dinner is a traditional, denim, buckaroo, bedroll-quilt made by Dale DeLong’s granddaughter, Christy Wright from Yerington, Nevada.  

Homemaker’s groups were very common in numerous areas 50 or more years ago, but now these groups are primarily a thing of the past. 

Despite this, the Jackson Mountain Homemakers remains strong and continues in its mission to help others. 

This group includes not only traditional homemakers but also civic-minded career women from various backgrounds including writers, librarians, photographers, teachers, ranchers, and business women with one common goal — the betterment of the local community. 

Please come and support this local group of hard-working women in helping others and enjoy a night of delicious food and fun!
