The Dutch foundation
The Dutch foundation The Kinks Preservation Society was founded on the
16th of July 1999 by 5 Dutch Kinks-fans:
Paul van Schevikhoven (chairman), Ruud Kerstiens (secretary), Huub Goudzwaard (treasurer), Siem van den Bergh and me (members).
In 2005 there were some changes: Paul left the committee, Huub became chairman, Siem became treasurer and Dick van Veelen became new member.
