Athelstane Masonic Lodge (Pearl River, NY) as part of their
ongoing community outreach programs is again partnering with area Masons to
provide a free safety ID opportunity for parents and caregivers for a digital ID
of children, teenagers and others.  This program is recognized as part of the
Amber Alert Program in conjunction with the National Center for Missing and
Exploited Children.  The Masonic Safety ID will be held Friday thru Sunday,
February 7, 8, 9, 2014 at SUNY  Rockland in the Eugene Levy RCC Field
House There is no charge for this vital service.  It is
anticipated than more than 300 IDs will be done at this event
According to law enforcement officials, more than 20,000
children are reported "missing" each year in New York State alone.  The Masons
in New York State  annually provide free Safety IDs in hundreds of locations and
since the program's inception a dozen years ago, more than 425,000 children and
adults have been afforded this electronic ID safety "protection."
Parents are given a computer disk including name, address,
parents or guardian, digital facial pictures,  fingerprints and all vital
personal information and pertinent physical characteristics.  This mini disk can
then be given to the first police on the scene to enter into the Amber Alert
system should the need arise.  Parents and caregivers are reminded that an ID
should be updated every few years as personal characteristics change as a child
grows older.
The Masonic Safety ID Program will be held at Rockland's 27th
 Suburban Home Show at RCC's Eugene Levy Field House, 145 College Road in
Suffern.  Show Hours are Friday, February 7th from 3 PM - 9 PM; Saturday,
February 8th from 10 AM to 8 PM; and Sunday, February 9th from 10 AM to 6 PM. 
No advance reservations are required for the Masonic Safety ID Program.
