How to Retire Happy

The Fredericksburg Knights of Columbus Council 4034 are hosting an Open House seminar titled “How to Retire Happy!” which is based on the book by Tom Hegna on October 25.  Agent Mark Primeau, a member of the Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT), will review key strategies that you can use to achieve a secure retirement and will cover long term care, social security, annuities, insurance use, and reverse mortgages, among other things.  All parishioners are welcome!

The meeting starts with a dinner at 7:00 PM, followed by the program from 7:30 – 8:30 PM. The Knights will provide the main course – pizza from Padrino’s on Lafayette Blvd, with side dishes.

Family, friends and guests are always welcome at our social meetings. RSVP to Paul Scott at or 540-891-9331, if you can attend so we can set the room and order sufficient pizza.  The location of the seminar is 4724 Harrison Road, Fredericksburg, Virginia 22407.  We hope to see you there!
