Sister Lakes offering free child identification program in May

On Saturday, May 14, the Peninsular Masonic Lodge #10 will be providing a free child identification program.

The event will be conducted between the hours of 12 p.m. and 3 p.m. and again between the hours of 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. The program will be held at the Sister Lakes Fire Department, located at 92282 County Road 690.

The program is being provided as a part of the Children’s Safety Day and Ninja Turtle Luncheon event.

Each child that goes through the process will receive a dental impression as well as a CD containing a photo, video, digital fingerprints and their vital information. Parents or legal guardians of children who participate must be present and fill out a permission slip for the child to receive this service. Children who have already received the service are encouraged to repeat the process every two years to keep the information in the completed packets current.

The Michigan Child Identification Program provides the family with everything needed for the Amber Alert System. Since 2005 over eighty thousand Michigan children have received this valuable service. The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children considers the Michigan Child Identification Program to be one of the most comprehensive of its kind.

For questions or more information about the event call (269) 612-7424 or consult the Michigan Child ID Web Site at www.michiganchildid.org
