Child ID Project at health fair
The Payson Masonic Lodge in cooperation with Payson Police Department is sponsoring the free Child ID Project at the Community Health and Care Fair, 8 a.m. to noon, Saturday, Nov. 5 at the Julia Randall Elementary School gym.
Volunteers take Amber Alert compatible electronic fingerprints, photos and biographical information on each child, which are put on a CD and given to the parents. The Masons also provide the parent with a DNA swab kit and laminated ID card to take home.
The Payson Lodge began Child ID as a pilot project about 18 months ago and through grants and contributions the Masons were able to buy their own equipment to provide this valuable service to the community.
For more information on Child ID, contact Herzig of Payson Masonic Lodge #70, (928) 951-2662 or e-mail: cbherzig@ gmail.com
