GRAND KNIGHT REPORT

Vivat Jesus

Next month we will have nominations for our new officers for the new administrative year, if you want to take a leadership role within the Council, you can be nominated or you can nominate yourself. You will have to be a 3rd Degree member to do so, so please give serious thought to pursuing a role within the Council. You will have to be a 3rd Degree member to do so, so please give serious thought to pursuing a role within the Council.

Now as to our Council, the administrative year is winding down, what have we accomplished, have we met the goals that we set forth or are we a bit short? Well the answer to that question can be best answered as to whether or not we made a difference within our community and our church. Our Councilís Pillars has helped us focus on important issues that affect us every day. That focus has allowed us to continue supporting Right to life thru our Baby Bottle Program and our Right to Life Poster Contest. That focus has allowed us to feed the homeless 3 times this administrative year feeding over 100 people each time making sure someone less fortunate then us had a hot meal. That focus brings smiles to those with Intellectual Difficulties knowing that we havenít forgot about them, that they still make a difference. That focus still drives us in our pursuit to help vocations, seminarians and our church community. Each year our goals are set in front of us, for our council we are close to meeting those goals, and with the continued support of our mem-bership, those goals will be achieved. If you have been a part of all the activities that we have participated in this year so far you have seen what affect it has had , and the differences it has made, if you havenít participated in our activities then this would be a good time to get involved and you too can make a difference.

LAWS and RULES of the ORDER;
The laws and rules of our Order, as well as state (provincial) laws, specify that the Knights of Columbus may accept insurance applications only from Knights of Columbus members. As a member, you may apply for insurance on yourself, your wife and your dependent, minor children. The Orderís Board of Directors has taken action, though, to assure that a brother Knightís widow maintains the right to purchase additional insurance for a limited time. This can be of great benefit and comfort to those we leave behind.
This ďright to applyĒ is available only to the widows of insured members. If a member has not availed himself of our top-rated life insurance program, or purchased an annuity or long-term care policy, Disability Insurance, this benefit is not available to his widow.
But if the member was an insured member, his widow has the right to apply for additional insurance on her life and on the lives of the memberís minor children. This right can be exercised for up to one year following the Orderís receipt of proof of the insuredís death.
Know two things. First, Iíll assist your widow and children in any way possible if you should die, both with your Knights of Columbus insurance and any other life insurance you may have. Second, Iíll provide them my best professional advice and service, to assure that they continue to have adequate insurance protection.
As a professional agent and a brother Knight, I have no greater responsibility.
*Receive a complete Family Needs Analysis at my expense.
Ask about our GUARANTEED LIFE INSURANCE, ANNUITIES,
LONG TERM CARE & DISABILITY INSURANCE
