TICONDEROGA — Mount Defiance Lodge No. 794, Free and Accepted Masons, will sponsor a free Child Safety ID Program on Thursday, July 4, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the front lawn of the Ticonderoga Masonic Temple at 10 Montcalm St. The building is located next to the Hot Biscuit Diner.
Parents of children age 12 and younger are invited to take advantage of this free program. Each child’s photograph and fingerprints are taken, along with a description of physical characters. This information is recorded on a mini CD and given to the parent or guardian for safe keeping. All materials collected are given to the parent or guardian once the child has been processed. No materials are retained by the Masons.
The Child Safety ID Program is designed to assist local law enforcement officers in the safe and timely recover of a lost or missing child. The mini CD provides law enforcement with valuable information to assist them in their efforts.
