Dieter Enz, Painter
Pete Scotty, Wellness

Our first speaker of the day was Craig Constable .  He spoke of the differences between term and whole life insurance, stating the benefits of each.  Permanent life insurance allows you to get your money back and is not a gamble like term.  One benefit of term is that it can be converted to permanent, or whole life insurance.  Here was Craig's poem:

Now I lay me down to snore,
Insured for several thousand more.
If I die before I wake,
My wife will get her first real break.
But should I live for 20 years,
My wife and I need shed no tears.
We can retire and fish and rest,
Back comes my money with interest.
In our old age we can keep our house,
And not live with our daughter’s spouse.
So, thank God for the real endurance,
Of the person who sold me life insurance!

Michael Cosgrove was our second speaker.  He reminded us that he brings a ladder to every cleaning job he does...leaving every nook and cranny completely clean.  He also looks for potential problems, for example in showers.  He brings a tube of caulk for your bathtub to make sure it does not leak.  This time of year is good for Michael to clean windows, clean screens & pressure washing.  He also gave us the skinny on vacuums, and let us know that they are not all the same!

Visitations are due on the 19th & Lunch Bunch is at Victory Brewing in Downingtown, Wednesday at 11:30.
