AT THE NEW
Hello Brother Knights
Our new building is almost finished, and September
will be a busy moving month. We will be in the first of
October but our hours are still in the works. First let’s
talk about the summer.
The Strassenfest Parade went great, a little wet
before we started, but beautiful weather for August.
Thanks to about 25 members, and streets lined with
friends of the Knights of Columbus, we collected just
short of one thousand dollars. The donations collected
from the flag in the parade and the tootsie roll drives at
all three parishes goes to S.I.R.S., Providence Home,
Camp Care, Gibault, and Special Olympics.
Thanks to everyone for their help at the tenderloin
booth from set up, to working, tear down and of course
patronizing the booth. Special thanks to Jeff and Glenda
Theising. As chairman I know he worked two weeks
nonstop, and to Donny Sander for all his support, equipment and advice.
The Annual Fish Fry was moved back to the basement, we hope this didn’t cause any inconvenience. We
thought the convenience of air conditioning and one last
party was a good move. Thanks to everyone, about 140
members, who joined us and enjoyed Joe Hochegsang
and crews fish and fixens. It was great but he has been
practicing on us for 23 years. Joe, hope you and your
chums will keep feeding us fish. I want to thank Larry
Hanselman for the use of the Schnitzelbank truck and
also thanks goes out to Donny Sander.
We just finished our last fund raiser under the bank,
a BBQ. The proceeds go to help pay on our new building. We have had a few unexpected expenses, which is
not uncommon, so every dollar counts.
Enough with the old news, let’s talk new building.
It looks great, the parking lot will be paved the last
week in August, all of it. That’s one of the unexpected
expenses, thanks to an offer from Cave Quarries that we
couldn’t pass up. The interior of the building is also
almost finished. Thanks to Donny Sander, we will have
a full kitchen and will be able to prepare everything for
our BBQ’s and other fundraisers. This means we will be
preparing most, if not all our dishes, maybe with some
Sanders secrets. You guys do remember how to clean
chickens don’t you?
The last function downstairs is a rental on September
8th. The next rental is in our new building on October
7th. We will be open as much as possible during the
transition. The down time won’t be long, so don’t worry
card players, we’ll have tables for you.
In September the bowling league starts on Thursday
September 6th. Our annual council golf scramble is on
September 29th. We will have our first function, in our
new building, a Night for Knights on October 5th. We
will end the month with a BBQ on October 28. November 5th is our memorial mass for our brothers who have
passed. It is a very moving tribute to them and their
September will be a busy month, deciding what to
move and what to save for the auction in November. I
want to thank everyone in advance for all their hard work.
We understand this new building is not exactly what everyone wanted, but we do hope it is mid ground enough,
remember we have over 1,100 voices. I think the building committee has done a great job. Please show them
and your fellow knights your support at the new Jasper
Knights of Columbus home.
One thing that excites me about the new building
is having the old neon sign back up. It will be on the
northwest corner and you’ll be able to see it from 231.
It will be nice to bring back a little of the past as we start
the next one hundred years of the Knights of Columbus
See you above ground, (no basement)
Dear Brother Knights and Family,
Do you remember when we began to
celebrate the first Mass in English? We
began in Advent 1965. That was a big
change for all of us. There were a few
words we still prayed in Latin for those
first few months. These changes in
the way we worship came through the
decisions of the Vatican II Council. The
Vatican II Council is where all the Catholic Bishops of the world
gathered for 3 years in Rome to renew the faith of the Catholic
Church. Vatican II Council began on October 11, 1962. Pope
Benedict XVI has announced that the 50th anniversary of this
date will be observed with a year-long celebration called the
Year of Faith. Our local Catholic Schools of Holy Family and
Precious Blood are observing this theme throughout the year.
We are also about to create a historical moment for our
local Jasper K of C # 1584. Hopefully within the month we
will be moving to our new facility on the north side of Jasper.
This is a big change from our downtown location. Most of
us have grown up with the present location. We had many
meals, banquets, meetings, family gatherings, and other civic
functions in this facility over those many years. Our building
has served us well. In our new facility, we will again create
new memories for the next 100 years. I realize that our Bishop
Charles Thompson will be in Jasper for the 175th anniversary
of the St. Joseph Parish on Saturday, December 1st, 2012. I
have suggested to the Bishop that he might want to come
after the evening celebration to our new K of C Hall and bless
it that same night. I will need to work this out with our K of
C officers. Remember this is only a suggestion. I will let you
know in the next newsletter.
As a member of the K of C you receive the monthly
magazine the Columbia. Everyone should especially read
the August issue. So many times we become members of
organizations and forget their original history. The Knights
of Columbus assumed corporate status on March 29, 1882.
Again we observe another anniversary this year. It is the 130th
anniversary of the Knights of Columbus. Our Local Council
of 1584 began only 29 years later. The August issue reviews
the rich history of our Catholic fraternal organization.
I personally need to reread the story of our founder Father
Michael J. McGivney, the 29 year old priest who established the
Knights of Columbus. Those first members took Christopher
Columbus as their patron since he was Catholic and recognized
as the Discoverer of America. The Knights have always had
the goal of serving their Church, community, and family with
virtue. The Knights always stand for fraternity, patriotism,
charity and unity.
As I close my message, we are never to forget those Knights
whom the Lord has called home to himself. It is noble and
right to remember our beloved dead. We will have our annual
Memorial service for those Knights who have died this past
year on Monday, November 5th at 7:00 p.m. at Holy Family
Church. I hope to see you there!
Fr. John Boeglin

welcome to attend.
Kickoff is October 13th - contact
Steve Luegers with any quesitons 631-4648.
Thank you to everyone who helped with the Strassenfest booth; stopped by to lend a hand where needed;
and/or purchased something from our booth. Without
you our project would not have been a success. We
sold over 1500 sandwiches over the four day fest. Not
all of the bills are in but it appears we cleared approximately the same as last year. We have kept notes and
data from this year’s booth to help make next year even
better. It’s not too early to step forward to chair next
year’s booth. We will gladly help with the planning.
Again, thank you for your support.

Still have just group insurance?
As a Knights of Columbus field agent, yes, I’m still around, I hear
about group life insurance every week. If you have it, it’s certainly not a
bad thing, but it can be a misleading security blanket. Most times, the
amount offered is far from what you need, and the only way to determine
what you need is with a comprehensive needs analysis. Your group coverage is not based on any analysis. Instead, they apply a formula: you make
X amount in salary and the group life is either a flat amount ($15,000
seems popular) or a multiple of your salary (somewhere between 1.5 and
2.5 is common). Either way, it has nothing to do with the number of children you have, the mortgage balance you carry, or the amount of money
your wife would need if you die. It’s a completely random number.
It can also disappear at any time. All of us know people - friends,
family members, neighbors - who have lost their jobs. When the job is
lost, so is the group life insurance coverage. If the company experiences
difficulty and budgets need to be cut, group life can be reduced or eliminated. And that decision could be made at the worst possible time for you.
Most group life insurance coverage reduces or disappears when you
retire. Many times it can be converted, but at a very expensive premium
(remember, you’re no kid anymore when you retire, and premiums do
rise as you get older). Just because you turn 65 doesn’t mean you no longer need life insurance or need less coverage. Actually, the opposite is
Do you still own just life insurance? It must be supplemented with a
personally owned portfolio. I can tell you exactly how to blend your group
benefit with your K of C life insurance so things can be in your control.
Don’t let the feeling of security that group life provides distract you from
the real issue: taking control or your family’s financial future!
