PRESIDENT’S CORNER

Our Annual Home and Garden Show held March 25 th and 26 th is now behind us. This is our 5 th year for this event and was the best ever in terms of turn out as well as revenue generated for our association. This event is the only source of income for our association with the exception of annual dues which doesn’t go very far. If you talk to any of the vendors who took part I am confident they will tell you that it was very effective in generating more clients and business for them. It certainly was for me.

As always, a whole lot of work fell onto a few people to make this event a reality. The committee who put this on Catherine Rajaniemi, Chair, Althea Swanson, Darlene Hilter, Steve Bouman and John Caponetto worked six months to make it happen. Hopefully, next year we can get some other people involved so it isn’t such a burden of these few people.

It is pretty evident to nearly everyone that at long last the recession is over for us. Everyone I talked to seems to be very busy and the new problem is finding a work force to get the work done. This is a nice problem compared to the last 10 or 11 years with not enough work.

This month’s guest speaker at our dinner meeting will be the Mohave County Assessor Jeannie Kentch. Ms. Kentch will be talking about property taxes and how evaluations are set. The difference between Primary and Secondary taxes as well as the various taxing districts which derive revenue from property taxes. There are some things that can be done to lessen your tax burden.

So plan to attend the dinner meeting Wednesday, April 12th , 6pm at Chaparral Clubhouse. Be sure and make reservations for dinner with John Caponetto as we must give a count for dinner.

PRESIDENT’S LETTER

I cannot believe it is March already and our Annual Home & Garden Show is only a little over two weeks away. Your committee has been hard at work for the past several months to make this Home Show bigger and better than ever before. The show this year will be held at the Riverview Mall March 25th and 26th. If you talk to anyone who has participated in this show in the past I am confident they all will tell you that it is a very productive way to increase  your business sales. If you haven’t yet committed to a booth at the show there is still time to do so. A 10’x10′ inside booth for association members is only $250.00 for the weekend.

There will also be a car show on Saturday and an arts and crafts show all weekend long. Contact any of our board members or Catherine at (928) 768-4211 to reserve a space. The Noon Kiwanis Club will again be offering sandwich and snacks as well as soft drinks.

Things are definitely looking up in Bullhead City. Since the first of the year a new Starbucks has started construction as well as a Harbor Freight store going in the old Hastings building. We now have scheduled airline service into Phoenix and points beyond which we all hope will be a successful addition to our community.

In addition, the City has made great progress on planning for an additional Park Recreational Area on Section 12 just south of old Bullhead City. This is an exciting purpose and it is expected that we will have access to an additional 1/2 mile of riverfront by hopefully this summer.

Mr. Clint Stevens, the Senior Planner for City of Bullhead will be our guest speaker at our regular dinner meeting Wednesday, March 8th at the Chaparral Clubhouse. Clint will have colored drawings of the new proposed park and you will have an opportunity to share any ideas you may have about what amenities you would like to see in this new park. Please email your dinner reservation to John Caponetto at adjuster7922@gmail.com. Do it now while you are thinking about it and be a part of the exciting future of Bullhead City/Mohave Valley
