MAKE A NOTE

Most of us at OLPH know Charley Moran and the work he is doing with the poor people of Haiti. After many hardships from Hurricanes, fires and floods Charley and his people go there to help them re-build.
The Council will sponsor an event to help him in this work. This event, a NIGHT AT THE RACES is scheduled at the Moose Club on Broadway for Friday, May 17th starting at 7 pm. The cost is only $12.00 and includes Food, Beer, Wine & Soda and other raffles. All profits from this affair will be turned over to Charley Moran.
Make your reservations from either Bob Dobres, Mike Hearney or Tom Romano.
Let's make an extra effort to make this event a big success to help Charley in this special charity of his.

KELLERS KORNER

You know the old saying, "the grass seems greener on the other side of the fence" but we all know that it rarely is. The same holds true when it comes to replacing your existing Knights of Columbus life insurance with coverage offered by another company. Perceptions are deceiving. A move to the "greener" grass on the other side of the fence might seem like a good one but it can leave you with less green in your wallet - in some cases, a lot less. That's why it pays to remember another old adage, "Read the fine print".
There are many reasons to keep your existing coverage in force, whether that coverage is with the Knights of Columbus or with another company. I'll focus on the potential pitfalls of replacing coverage here - pitfalls than an agent trying to convince you that the grass actually is greener might neglect to mention.
First, all life insurance contracts contain a contestability period, which allows the insurer to contest claims made for a period - typically two years - after the contract is issued. Chances are this is no longer an issue with your current coverage.
Second, it's unlikely that you can obtain the same amount of coverage, for the same premium that you were able to obtain with your existing contract. The two factors that determine how much you'll need to pay for life insurance coverage are age and health. Certainly you're older now than you were when you took out your current coverage. There's no way around that. And you have to ask yourself, has your health changed during that time? Is you blood pressure the same? Your cholesterol? Have you gained weight? All these factors can affect the amount of coverage you'll get for your premium dollar. Call me I can HELP.
