Masons to conduct a free Child ID Program in Portland

August 7, 2019


On Saturday August 24, 2019 Tuscan-Mt. Gilead Masonic Lodge #178 will be providing a free child identification program. The program will be available between the hours of 11:00 AM and 5:00 PM. The program will be conducted at Red Mill. The program is being provided during the Red Mill Community Day event.


Each child that goes through the Child ID process will receive a dental impression kit as well as a flash drive 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.  Over ninety three 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.
