Happy New Year to all of our members - I wish you all a wonderful year in your personal lives and I
hope that all of your resolutions are attained. I am looking forward to working on our regular
programs throughout 2015 and, with your help; I hope we can expand on some of those as well.
The beginning of each year should allow us time to reflect on our core values as Knights of Columbus
which are Charity, Unity, Fraternity and Patriotism. I would like 2015 to be a vibrant year of Charity
for the Marquette Council 588. I would also like for us to think about more unique ways for us to
share our Fraternity; amongst ourselves and amongst our families.
More than anything else, I am looking for new ideas in 2015. Along with new ideas, we need new
efforts to see those ideas become a reality. Ideas on how we can solidify our Charity like new events
or innovative ways to support our traditional benefactors. Ideas on how we can expand our Fraternity
by sharing an event amongst our families that we all will love to attend. How about some creative
new ways to assist groups and individuals in need? Let’s look into areas and organizations that can
use our support in some way.
Our success in 2015 is dependent on our ability to work as a team. Your support and selfless
contributions are always appreciated. I am not asking any one individual to be the perfect Knight in
2015. Instead, I am asking that we work together as perfectly as we can and contribute a strong
effort in 2015 that will benefit all of us as members. Our selfless efforts will then benefit those
areas/groups/individuals we support because they need us now as much as they ever needed us
before.
Vivat Jesus! Jim

Brothers, What is your New year's resolution? Lose weight? Exercise more? Be nicer to your family
and friends? These are all good resolutions to have. Here are a few more. Make sure your family is
provided for if this is your last New Year's Eve. Make sure if you get sick or injured that your pay
check continues to come in. Make sure that you have money saved for retirement. Make sure you
don't have to spend everything you worked hard for all your life just to give it to a nursing home. I
cannot help you lose weight, exercise more or be nicer to your family and friends, but you and I,
working together, can make the other resolutions come true. Life Insurance, Long Term Care
Insurance, Long Term Disability Insurance and Retirement Fixed Annuities. We have a full circle of
protection for our members and families. Please call anytime at 973-586-0098 for more information.
Happy New Year! Fraternally, Guy J. Mariani 973-586-0098
