GRAND KNIGHT'S MESSAGE
Brothers and Sisters: welcome to Fall. I can hardly believe that Summer is over. I would like to thank John Reynolds and my wife Gayle for a wonderful installation
dinner dance. They worked very hard
for what turned into a magical evening. I also want to thank Phil Maniaci and his team of District Wardens who did a fantastic
ceremony. I am grateful to Msgr. Joe for letting us use of the Church and for Mark’s help with the set up.
A special thanks for the Squires for being there and helping in the serving and clean up. Nick,
you and your team are a great asset to our Council. Joe Artusa, who was representing the Counselors, proves why Nick is a
good Chief Squire.
This October will prove to be a very busy one for us. On October
7th, we will be honoring Stephen Strigaro at our annual Columbus Day
Dinner Dance. We are happy to honor a man who has done so much for our council. Phil Renna is chairing this event so please
contact him for tickets.
On October 30th, a testimonial will be held to honor Tom Romano as Past Chapter Chairman. I have tickets for this event. This will
prove to be a very interesting afternoon, so please attend and see what will happen.
15th, we will be having our Memorial Mass. We will be celebrating Mass
at the Church and we will have cake and coffee afterwards. Please come and honor our dearly departed who have past from this
world during this year.
Please pray for our Country, our troops, our veterans, our
council, and our families.
Charlie Shami—Grand Knight

REPORT - KELLER'S KORNER
UPDATE YOUR BENEFICIARIES
it is easy to overlook the simplest of things.
for example, the beneficiaries on your life insurance policies. If your policy
was applied for and issued
several years ago, it may very well be that the person you originally selected
as the beneficiary is now longer the person you would want to receive the
policy proceeds. If you bought the policy
when you were single, for example, you may have named your parents as
beneficiaries. If you have since married
your policies should be updated to reflect your spouse as beneficiary. Maybe
you’ve had children since, who are not
named on the policies.
people list a primary beneficiary, who is specifically designated as the first
in priority to receive policy proceeds.
We also encourage the naming of a contingent beneficiary, an alternate
person designed to receive policy proceeds, usually in the event that the
original beneficiary pre-decreases the insured.
routinely call all of my policyholders for annual review appointments, usually
near the anniversary date of your policy – that is, the date it was originally
issued. One of the matters that I’ll
discuss during this review is the status of your beneficiary designations. If
they need updating and they often do, I
can complete the paperwork during that appointment. I look forward to meeting
with each you to
discuss your family’s needs.
