KINGMAN OLD TIMERS CHAT-N-CHOW Reviews
The information in some of these reviews is extremely off base. The funds that were FILED through IRS and other required official data has shown that the assets in the 2009 filing included many items that the members voted to keep in the possession of the County. They also voted to move the facility to a permanent location and office by 16-0 with the Secretary and Treasurer obstaining. Mike Barratta brought the idea to the Board in August of 2009, then he left the board and the new President, Richard Graff continued the process that the membership in attendance voted on. All of the furniture assets and LTAF funding were returned to the County and the decision to leave the Sr. Center was based on the requirements given by the County for a membership that felt they would not be able to accommodate the requirements. THEY VOTED FOR ALL THESE THINGS WITH the Secretary and the Treasurer abstaining from each vote. The assets were all in tact and as of September of 2010 were still in place with an additional $3,000.00 added to the building fund that was a total verified total from the statutory agent and Charlie Fike of $41,000.00. When the Board of 2009-2010 left the office, they were into the 2nd year on a lease, had granted monies exceeding over $12,000.00 to those in need, developed a food box program, aided in donations of clothing, furniture and misc. for seniors, developed social programs for sr. and still had $4,000.00 over the amount of total assets in 2009.
There is a new Board that went into officership in September of 2010 and they hold the funds from a Board and a membership of over 300 people.
