Ballots were counted and all but two people agreed with the proposed revision of the Articles of Incorporation! Thank you to all who participated in making this decision.
Members of the Community at Holmes Harbor are being asked to make a decision about a proposed re-structuring of this organization. At present CHH is a certified non-profit corporation under the Revised Code of Washington and has an IRS tax-exempt status of 501(c)(4). This standing has served us well under the currently stated purpose of our 12-year old organization. If, however, the Articles of Incorporation were rewritten as shown, and we applied for and received a 501(c)(3) IRS status, it would be possible to expand our activities into several more beneficial areas, and to receive tax-deductible donations to assist with these efforts.
Proposed new wording:
“This non-profit public benefit corporation is formed to:
1) support a community model of “neighbors-helping-neighbors”,
2) augment the resources of the Community Emergency Response Team,
3) assist in the development and maintenance of youth & adult programs; i.e, educational, athletic, cultural, etc.,
4) help establish and maintain community multi-purpose areas and facilities."
Anyone not a member is welcome to join. Please read the information about eligibility before completing all sections of the membership form to the left on this page, and send it with the appropriate dues to the PO box. Ballots may be requested by e-mail until July 19th, and will be sent by e-mail after membership has been confirmed. firstname.lastname@example.org
Ballots will be counted on Monday, July 28th, and may be submitted by mail or e-mail, or may be presented personally at the picnic on Sunday, July 27th. Ballots received after the 27th will not be counted. Voting is confidential.
