As a father, you worry about your children and do everything you can to protect them. You try to raise them right and make sure they are prepared to become adults. But have you ever thought about buying life insurance for your child?
When you insure a child, you are protecting his or her future. Did you know that one out of every six adults get rated, postponed, or denied for insurance coverage? If you purchase a policy for your child from the Knights of Columbus with a guaranteed purchase option, it guarantees that more insurance can be purchased for that child at certain set dates, without proving insurability.
Unfortunately, as fathers we don’t have a crystal ball, and we don’t know what the future may have in store for our children’s health. But did you know that right now you can purchase a child’s policy, in many cases, for less than $10 a month?
I’ve heard it said that people don’t want to “profit” from the death of a child, so they won’t purchase coverage on their children. God forbid something tragic happens, those funds can come in handy at a time when finances will be the last thing on a parent’s mind. I have never heard a story about someone who regretted buying coverage on their child.
Contact me today to discuss the many policy options for child plans, including 10- and 20-Pay life insurance.

The semi-annual council euchre party and roast beef dinner was again very successful. Joe Lorentz reported a profit of $800 from a sold-out night.
Thanks to Ken Gaffney along with Fred Dubrick, Tom Gould, Mike Mooney, and Jim & Marlene Kelly for volunteering to stand by the Salvation Army kettle earlier this month.
Thanks to Mike Lobsinger and helpers Shawn Raiman, John Price, and Mike Mooney for organizing the skating party. 80 skaters enjoyed the outing.
Thirty members enjoyed a meal prior to the December council meeting. Thanks again to Mike for organizing the meal. After the January council meeting it will time to play Chase the Ace. Mike also sets up the Boston Pizza fund raisers for council.
As we approach the end of the calendar year we would like to remind everyone that should anyone wish to make a charitable donation & receive a charitable tax receipt, your donation would be greatly appreciated. Make cheque payable to “Kilroy Council No 1431 Charitable Welfare Trust” and mail or deliver to John Saman 29 Sutter St. Stratford, Ontario N4Z 1G7 before December 29th, so that the donation will show in our records for 2016.
You can also contribute to the Welfare Trust account by stipulating that any memorial donations made at the funeral home, in memory of friends & relatives, be made in favour of “Kilroy Council No 1431 Charitable Welfare Trust” and the funeral home will accommodate your request, after which we will issue you your charitable tax receipt.
Thanks to all who have contributed to the Charitable Welfare Trust account over the past years.
