Personalities present were Mr. Xavier Beck, Conseiller Départemental, and Mr. Zambernardi representing the Mayor of Villefranche, Mr. Bauchet and Mrs. Hattemberg.
The financial balance sheet for the year 2016 was presented and unanimously accepted.
The commemoration celebration of the departure of the Sixth Fleet was a great success.
The President thanked the many partners/sponsors for their generous contributions and outlined various projects for this year:

– A beautiful souvenir book with photographs of the celebration and testimonies from the past, is being prepared and will soon be available.
– A documentary film “Villefranche our favorite Liberty”, realized by Hugo le Gourrierec and Florent Plana in partnership with ESRA Nice, will be shown for the first time this spring and will then be available on DVD, co-produced by our Association and Art Sept.
