GRAND KNIGHTS MESSAGE
Hello Brother Knights
I know things have been slow as far as events
go, we will start “heating up” soon and there will be
many volunteer opportunities ahead and I hope every
Brother Knight will consider signing up for an event
or two throughout the year.
We are about to launch our new website
which will be an avenue to keep all members updated
as to council activities and upcoming events and
make it very easy for all to volunteer for events. I
would encourage all Brother Knights to attend the
next general membership meeting on August 20th as
we will have a demonstration of the new website for
all to see.
A reminder that the family picnic is fast
approaching on Saturday August 11th and I would
encourage all Brother Knights to attend and even
invite someone that you think would be interested in
joining or learning more about the Knights of
Columbus.
Also a reminder we will be collecting
donations for the Marriage Amendment at the
General Membership meeting, all money collected
will go to the donation promised by the State
Council.

INSURANCE CORNER
BIG Mistake: Relying on the GROUP life insurance
you get at work!
If you are like many people, you receive at least some group life
insurance as a benefit of employment. I'm not against having this
coverage because it is generally free or inexpensive, but if you rely
solely on this coverage to protect your family and your BIGGEST asset
– your paycheck, then I ask that you pay especially close attention to
the following story.
My cousin, David, enjoyed life with his wife and two sons as an
armored truck car driver in Portland, Oregon. He had been with the
company for over 20 years and was a stellar employee. It seemed like
everything was going very well until he started experiencing minor
bouts of blurred vision and dizziness. The resulting diagnosis was not
only about to change David's life, but was about to impact his family in
ways he did not foresee. David had inoperable brain cancer.
David's health continued to deteriorate slowly. About a year after his
diagnosis, the armored truck company David worked for finally let him
go. Unfortunately, David and his family found out the hard way that
his group term life insurance was a benefit of employment only. The
$250,000 that they were relying on was no more.
We buried my cousin David on June 16. Unfortunately, while David's
loss is emotionally devastating the financial toll will last even longer.
I'm sure David's family would have purchased a personally owned life
insurance policy had they known that his group term life would be gone
the day he was laid off.
I share this because I don't want David's death to be in vain. Don't ever
rely on your employers group term to be there when you need it. A
personally owned term life insurance is just too cheap NOT to have it.
Call me and I'll be happy to arrange a short visit with you and explain
your options. It doesn't have to be expensive. As always, I promise
never to try and force you into something you don't want or need.
Be sure to hug your wife and kids today.
God bless,
