You may have read it in the ‘upcoming events’ or ‘from the east’ sections, but we’d like to remind you Brethren, each an every one of you, that Constellation Lodge is hosting a CHIP event on Sunday April 29, 2007. Just because Constellation is hosting the event should be not mean that other members of the Masonic family, be they Demolay, Rainbow, Eastern Star or other Brethren are not welcome and invited to attend, lend a hand and have a good time helping others. So come out, bring your family and friends, help out or even get yourself ID’d. These programs are one of the most prominent public relations events that Masonry in Massachusetts presents to let the public know that we are a part of the community. If you have the opportunity please stop by.
MYCHIP (Masonic Youth Child Identification Program) has identified more than 226,284 children since its inception and it continues to assist families today. The program provides tools to help law enforcement authorities find a missing child during the most critical hours, and a permanent identification record in the event of a tragedy. The Masons of Massachusetts donate MYCHIP resources to make this service available to the public. All the identifying materials are given to the child's family.
The Free Program Materials:
VIDEOTAPE: A brief videotaped interview that can be quickly distributed to the media in order to reach a huge audience.
FINGERPRINTING: Fingerprinting is a well-known means of identification. Resourceful parents keep fingerprints available should the need arise.
TOOTHPRINTS: A tooth print bite impression is quick and easy. Teeth, like fingerprints are unique. A dental imprint gives both accurate and important information for identification purposes.
CHEEKSWAB: A Q-tip is gently rubbed on the inside of a child’s cheek to gather DNA material.
