The Mariner The Official Publication of Our Lady of the Rosary Council, No. 9039 Knights of Columbus P.O. Box 6146 Volume 11, Issue 2 Ocean Isle Beach, N.C. 28469 G. K. Ed Manz http://www.kofc-shallotte.org/ 2/1/2011 Brothers All: The February Mariner is going to be published rather early because our Worthy Editor in Chief will be away on a very well deserved vacation, on his way through the Caribbean and headed for the Panama Canal. So, I am putting my monthly 'Blurb’ together very early also, so that Dave can get it into the Mariner prior to his voyage. As we pretty much had a stand still over the past two weeks, due to the Holidays, there is not too much to report. However, there is an important matter I would like to discuss. For some time now it has been the practice at our monthly meetings to dispense with the reading of the minutes from the previous meeting. We do this in the interest of saving time because we try to keep our meetings comprehensive, but not longer than an hour, if possible. We feel we can do this because the minutes of each meeting can be read on our website. We announce this at each meeting and before the minutes are approved for that prior meeting, and ask if anyone has any corrections before we ap- prove them. Unless a number of our members who attended the previous meeting do read the minutes on the website, we will never get any corrections. Needless to say this could be a serious problem. A link to the website can be found in the list of offi- cers on page 2. Evidently we ran into such a problem with the minutes of our November meeting. There was a misunderstanding of a motion made and seconded. Therefore, please make an attempt to remember to read the minutes of the last meeting prior to attend- ing the next one. We have a special meeting planned with our Program Director/Deputy Grand Knight and the various Committee Directors to complete our Activity Schedule for the bal- ance of our Council Year which ends in June. As soon as this is ready we will have copies for our members. Volume 11, Issue 2 Page 2 Keep in mind our upcoming Monthly Dinners in our new Hall, prepared in our new beautiful kitchen by Jerry Siegmund and his staff. The first is Saturday, January 22nd following 5'oclock Mass and the next one will be Saturday, February 19th. In addition, we will be having a Fish Fry each Friday in Lent at 6:00 PM, except on Good Friday, of course. We hope you all have a Happy and Healthy New Year.

Volume 11, Issue 2 Page 5 Don’t wait, act today When your family is hungry, you see that this need is taken care of quickly. You don’t put it off until tomorrow, you act immediately to the best of your ability. As a provider to your wife and children, your responsibilities are great and your time is spread thin. It is easy to forget important tasks or let them slip to the backburner for later. Everything, including your health, can change in the blink of an eye. Don’t put off today what can’t wait until tomorrow. As your profes- sional Knights of Columbus agent, I urge you to make securing life insurance for you and your family a top priority. It is my fraternal obligation to make sure that every member has the opportunity to protect his family with the Order’s top-rated insur- ance products. I’ll work with you to put a plan in place that will help your family when that help is what they needed the most. Your Knights of Columbus insurance program is second to none. As the premier safety net for Catholic families for more than 126 years, our insurance program makes me proud. But I’m also con- cerned that too many of our brother Knights have not yet looked into the needs of their family. I suspect that, for many of them, life insurance has drifted to the backburner until tomorrow. Don’t be one of them; move your insurance needs to the forefront today.
