Objectives of the association
Our first aim is to have as many members as possible in order to show local and national public authorities, as well as private investors , that there really is a craze for the creation of a “museum” dedicated to Antoine de Saint Exupéry in France.
The project already exists, it is an attractive and ambitious project.
A lifetime subscription to the association costs 2 €.
Our second aim is to be able to organize visits, projections and restoration works in the mansion and in its park.
That’s why, in addition to the subscription, you can also give a donation !
Who are we ?
e are inhabitants of the village of Saint-Maurice-de-Rémens, members of the town council, and we are all working voluntarily for the association.
Along with other willing people, we spend some time at week-ends trying to trim trees, clean or paint some walls in the park to make the place as attractive as possible and enjoyable for all !!
The members of the association board are :
Patrick Don – Président
Laure Plantade-Vice president
Patrick Wolff – Treasurer
Brigitte Balastegui – Secretary
Why Saint-Maurice-de-Rémens ?
Saint-Maurice-de-Rémens in the French department of Ain, is Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s childhood village. As he said himself, he spent there “the best time of his life”.
Whether in his personal letters or in his books, Saint-Exupéry often refers to Saint Maurice.
