The Lee’s Summit Masonic Lodge will sponsor a free child identification program during the annual Holly Festival Craft Fair from 9 a.m.-4 p.m., Nov. 9-10 at Bernard Campbell Middle School, 1201 NE Colbern Rd.
Volunteers, family and friends from the Masonic Lodge will provide families with this free service through the Masonic CHIP (Child Identification Program).
The Masonic Lodge volunteers will take a photograph of each child from several different angles, take a DNA swab from the child’s mouth, make a dental impression and take the child’s fingerprints. The entire kit will be given to the children’s parents or guardians with the wish that it will never be used. Information in the kit is designed to be used by law-enforcement officials in the recovery of a missing child.

The Holly Festival is a benefit for the Lee’s Summit Drug Abuse Resistance Education (DARE) program.
