Nevada Masonic Kid's
Your child should have this ID!
ID s MADE A
wonderful bunch of Masons, Stars, and Jobs Daughters members
have processes over 44 ID Kits so far this year. That means our
fraternity has had a positive influence on the lives of over
6400 people since its inception. That is just the beginning.
Who knows how many they told about us. I do know we have had
four men join our Fraternity, and are now Master Masons, because
of what this program has represented to them. More will follow.
THE ID KIT INCLUDES The Laminated
Photo-ID Card, the ID "Wanted Poster" information sheet,
Additional Personal Information Form, Tooth Print (for DNA, Scent,
Tooth Matching), Hair Sample (for color & Texture matching),
Thumb Prints, and a lot of information on how to keep your kids
expendable supplies used in making up the tooth print, samples,
brochures, forms and items contained in the ID kit add up to
a cost of about $1.40 per ID kit produced. In some cases the
corporate hosts are willing to pay for this and any other expenses
we may incur.
support is required to make this work. It is easy to do, and
getting better and easier all the time. Support is growing and
will continue to grow as more of our members are exposed to it.
They all come away with a smile on their faces, a good feeling
in their heart, and a desire to do it again. Please get your
Lodge, Chapter, or Body to sponsor an event. It reaches more
people and can do more than anything the Blue Lodges and Chapters
have done in a long time. It is the best thing we have come up
Families participating in the program have come from all walks
of life and all the diversity we would hope to serve in the community.
They all are very greatful and often express their surprise that
the service is free to them. We have had no complaints but that
we are not out there doing it every day.
have three complete booth sets in operation. A set includes everything.....
including the signs, brochures, clip boards, pencils, forms,
awning, chairs, tables, cables, cords, computer, printer, camera,
fingerprint, toothprint, card lamination materials and a lot
more. It all comes packed in their own containers and makes a
good, positive, professional, and informative impression on those
who see us and observe this operation.
recognitian and kudos go out to the Young Ladies of Jobs
Daughters, Bethel #5 and their leaders. They have sponsored
three events and are planning for more. The Ladies have even
done a Fund Raiser with the program to benefit. Caliente
Lodge # 38 has had five events up in the Lincoln County
area and I know that they will be up to bat again soon. Nellis Lodge #46 a number of events to
their credit. They even have the all time record of 400 registrations
in 4 days at the Shrine Circus this last year. And one member
has worked magic on his events and even took a booth up to Goldfield's
Masons to work with Montezuma Lodge #40.
Events sponsored by Boulder City Lodge
#37 have brought us attention there. Even Pioche's Saint John Lodge #19 has gotten into
the act over their Labor Day Celebration.
Dhahran Daylite Lodge #55 took on a pair of events. Sandy Valley Lodge #56 has worked with
the School to ID Kids in their valley. We just received a donation
