le Petit Journal de

La Flaujaguaise

February 2019

February with La Flaujaguaise

Our first general meeting was held on February 2nd. The 82 members present and accounted for unanimously approved the Moral and Financial reports of 2018.
The new articles and by-laws were unanimously approved as well.
The Board of Directors now has 16 members, ready and full of energy for this new year. The minutes of the meeting will be available on our website early next week.
The mayor honored us with his presence but announced that he was “suspending his support” for the café/épicerie project! Quite a bombshell, because he had been all for it before! He justified himself saying he had heard from certain ex-members of the association that present members had negative things to say about him and the town council....The joys of small villages! We couldn't get anymore info from him, but we will try to discover what happened, what changed his mind.
It's hard to understand how the Mayor can suspend a project that has only one goal: to give life back to the village! Especially based on conjecture and gossip! We will request a meeting to clarify this situation as soon as possible and will not fail to communicate the results and details. We have designed a new Petit Journal which will evolve during the month. You are free to send us events to publish, ideas and projects you are interesting is developing etc.
