The Meeting in the Town Hall

(The Summary of “Noli Me Tangere”)

The town officials meet in the town hall to discuss the fiesta celebration.  The council approves the proposal of Don Filipo, but the Gobernadorcillo tells them that the curate’s alternate proposal must be followed instead.  Although the council objects to the Curate’s proposal, they are powerless to stop implementation of the plan.  Don Filipo and Tasio the sage go home dejected.
