A busy Kid's Day at the Midland Mall
Monday January 25, 2010

More than 200 children have complete identification kits after attending the 2010 Kids' Day event Saturday sponsored by Big Brothers Big Sisters in the Heart of Michigan.

"They processed over 200 kids and ran out of discs," said Angie Karwan, with BBBS. "We could have processed more if they had more discs. The Masons were very pleased."

The Michigan Masonic Child ID Program provides parents with a copy of their child's dental impression record as well as a CD containing a photo, video, digital fingerprints and vital information. The Midland-based Centre Masonic Lodge No. 273 supported the project.

The event at the Midland Mall also featured fun activities for kids, such as a petting zoo and a hands-on science booth from the American Chemical Society.

"It was a wonderful event," Karwan said. "The petting zoo is always a hit."
