GRAND KNIGHTS MESSAGE
Brothers,
It's October and that means that we are about to
embark on the schedule of fund raising, and other,
events for the fiscal year. We begin with Fall
Festival Bingo on Friday evening, October 7th
followed by Fall Booya on the 15th, and finally with
Fall Major Degrees on the 29th. The success of each
one of these events depends on volunteers. This is
not difficult or labor intensive work and we always
have a good time working together. Actually, there is
one other very important event on October 10th. At
6:00 PM that evening, in Fellowship Hall, we will
join with the Council of Catholic Women, to
acknowledge and honor the contributions of four
individuals who have been chosen to accept awards
for their contributions to the betterment of our church
and community. This is a wonderful opportunity to
show your thanks and support for those honorees. It's
a fun evening, open to all parishioners and families
and snacks and refreshments will be offered
following the program. Please join us as we
celebrate the work of those four award recipients!
Also, a reminder that October is "Respect Life"
month. Among the gravest threats to human dignity
are abortion, assisted suicide, euthanasia,
reproductive technologies, contraception and
elimination of the unborn with physical or mental
disabilities. Our daily prayers to bring an end to
these threats are too important to ignore. May God
bless each one of you and your family.
Vivat Jesu!

THANK YOU VOLUNTEERS!
We had a Great year last year with the percentage of
Knights involved in projects. Keep up the good work.
INSURANCE CORNER
Brother Knights and Families,
My career as your KC representative gives me the opportunity
to visit with many people from all walks of life. I always ask if
they currently work with a financial planner. When they say
“yes,” I like to ask a follow up question: “Has your planner
ever told you when it's a “good” time to sell your stocks?” Only
occasionally do I hear an affirmative to that question. They are
typically told one of the following when the markets are going
down:
1. Don't get out now! The market always comes back.
2. Let it ride! (Hmmm.... isn't this a gambling term?)
3. Now is the time to buy more!
Now, I'm not against owning stocks, but I do remember when it
was a rich man's game, that is until the advent of the 401k.
People used to be able to count on the guaranteed income that
pensions provide. You can bring this stability back to your
portfolio by investing in a Knights of Columbus guaranteed
annuity. In fact, if you had placed $100,000 into a KC annuity
on January 1, 2000, it would have grown in value by December
30, 2010, to at least $150,000 (plus bonus interest!). By
comparison, the S&P 500 would have provided you only
$104,000 during the same period. A Knights of Columbus
flexible premium annuity is guaranteed never to lose money
and is currently guaranteed to earn at least 3% return
annually! Maybe it's time to think about that KC annuity! Call
me!
God bless,
