As part of their celebration, the Iowa Yorkrite Masons will be having a Safety I.D. Program for children that will be free of charge and will contribute to the recovery of a missing child.
The child must be accompanied by a parent of guardian.
This I.D. will include a 360 degree photograph of the child, a history and measurement of the child, a DNA swab from the mouth, digital fingerprints of both hands and all results will be placed on a disc that will be given to the parent for safe keeping.
