      It is appropriate that during this week of Thanksgiving that the Flour Bluff Citizens Council Board of Directors came together to finalize the creation of the organization.  Many Flour Bluff citizens have pondered the creation of such a group for many years. At last, the time is right, and God has blessed the community with a group of people who are committed to making it better in the Bluff.

     On October 25, 2016, the Flour Bluff Citizens Council, held a general meeting where the members in good standing elected nine board members and one non-voting, ex officio member to serve on the board of directors.  The board includes Weston Beseda, Justin Green, Chris Hooper, Kyle Pape, James Skrobarczyk, Greg Smith (ex officio), Lloyd Stegemann, Shirley Thornton, Jonathan Vela, and Jennifer Welp.

      The FBCC Board of Directors met, elected officers, and established committees on November 21, 2016.  The results follow:
