GRAND KNIGHTS MESSAGE
Brother Knights
As we turn the calendar on another year, it's time for us to
focus on a busy schedule of council events in the next few
months. Most are fund raisers and all require volunteer
workers. If you haven't attended a KC membership
meeting in some time, I invite and urge you to make a
special effort to join us on Monday, January 23rd at 6:45
P.M. to recite the Rosary and/or at 7:00 P.M. for the
business meeting. Attendance has been increasing over the
past few months and it's been gratifying to see new faces
in the crowd, and to learn of the enthusiasm and talent that
they bring to the table! Since fund raising is the "$eed"
that allows us to practice the first principal of our order,
that of Charity, we're always open to ideas about how to
improve events that we conduct during the year and we're
particularly interested in hearing of any new fund raising
ideas. So please make plans to attend this months meeting.
See first hand what we're doing, and don't be shy about
letting us hear your voice. And, following the meeting, we
always enjoy a friendly schmooze session over pizza and
liquid refreshment! Please join us!!

THANK YOU VOLUNTEERS!
Mary and I really appreciated all of the help from Ben Rauen and
Terry and Becky Thelan in Preparing the Christmas Party. As
always it was a fun event.
Terry Thelan also coordinated with the Nikki Bang Fundraiser
and put together a crew to cook and serve the meal for them.
Joe Morisette put together some great Santas for the calls from
Santa program another success.
Mark Slaikeu organized the Coffee and doughnuts with Santa.
INSURANCE CORNER
Brother Knights and Families,
EFFECTIVE WAYS TO HELP YOUR CHURCH IN TOUGH
TIMES
Brother Knights and Families,
Have you ever wished that you could leave a financial gift
as a legacy to your parish (or favorite charity) but thought
that only RICH people could afford to do this? You don't
have to be wealthy to make a significant financial impact
on your parish. There's a very cost effective way leaving a
sizable gift that will benefit your parish. Consider
making your church the beneficiary of a life insurance
policy!
Perhaps you have an existing policy that is no longer
needed. It's a simple process to transfer an existing policy
to your church or charity and your gift may even qualify
as a tax write-off! Another method is to purchase a new
life insurance policy and make your church the
beneficiary! Small, affordable payments create a
wonderful “leveraging” effect that your church will
benefit from. For example, a $50 per month premium on
a sixty year old person that lives to 85 can produce a
legacy of over $28,000! This nearly doubles the amount
you paid in. And the longer you live, the greater your gift!
That's the beauty of using life insurance to leverage your
giving! Oh, one more thing: your priest will LOVE you!
Give me a call and I'll be happy to share the details!
God bless,
Dale Robinson, FIC

PROUD TO BE A KofC
NEWSLETTER UPDATE
This year we are involved in the coats for kids a
program that gives new coats to kids that don’t have
warm coats. All of the coats have been delivered. 12 went
to Richardson Elementary, 8 went to Josephs Coats, and
4 went to St. Peters School. They all were very grateful
and had kids to give them to already. Next year this can
be a good project to expand on. We also donated money
and time for the Nikki Bang fundraiser. We also donated to
the Hill Murray and North High senior classes, Women’s
Life Care Center and Loaves and Fishes.
MEMBERSHIP DUES
We continue to collect and update the email address list.
We now have over half of the council on our list. We will
continue to try to improve the reliability and readability of
the newsletter. If you have suggestions for improvement or
if we are not delivering your newsletter electronically we
may have an incorrect address so send an email to John
Lawless @ [email protected]
This Month and from now on the newsletter will be
mailed to people that we cannot deliver to
electronically only.
FIRST DEGREE TEAM
We are always looking for new members. And it is
almost dues time again. We would like everyone to
pay their dues in a timely manner to avoid duplicate
mailings etc. We really don’t want to waste time
and money sending multiple bills. We don’t want to
suspend or even threaten to suspend our brothers if
you are having financial trouble and are unable to
pay the dues and you still want to be a Knight
Contact The financial secretary or the Grand Knight
and we will take care of it.
The council First Degree Team is up and
functioning. We would like to practice so ask the
people that you know that appear to be good guys to
join. We are hoping to have a Major degree on a
weeknight in February to accommodate those who
cannot make a Saturday event.
