Child-ID Program Restarts

Our Child-ID program got restarted the first week in August for the National Night Out observance. We held events at Aberdeen and Watertown with success at both events. Aberdeen did 60 kids and Watertown 42 kids. The numbers were down from past years about 30 percent because of lower attendance at the entire event and not from public fear of the personal contact that our program presents.
Another event is planned for Rushmore Mall in Rapid City on October 2nd and hopefully as much success is enjoyed there as happened in the 1st two events. If your Lodge is thinking about an event please contact any of the Child-ID committee members and we will be happy to help.
