This year’s first local Masonichip child identification clinic was extremely successful.
Don Salt, reported that the program funded by the Masons that gathers important data for parents useful to police in the case of a missing child, was very well received.
They had a booth set up at the South Dundas Chamber of Commerce Trade Show and there they saw 75 children.
They even had six teenaged girls and two teenaged boys participate in the clinic.
Salt was especially pleased that the teenaged girls participated in the program, a target group that he would like to seem more of at the clinics.
From his years as a law enforcement officer, he knows that they are the highest risk group. For those who missed the first clinic, the Iroquois-Cardinal Masons are hosting their next clinic at the Cardinal Firehall Saturday, May 11, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. No appointment is necessary.
