Sumner Masonic Lodge hosting CHIP workshop
SUMNER - The Sumner Masonic Lodge, the Grand Lodge of Illinois, and the Illinois State Police are again teaming up to register children through the Child Identification Program.

The Illinois Child Identification Program (CHIP) provides police with a kit to help them find missing children.

Sumner's Masonic lodge, coordinating with state police, is hosting free identification workshops Friday afternoon from 2:40-6 p.m.; Saturday morning from 9-11 a.m.; and Saturday afternoon from 1-3:30 p.m. to help police prepare kits. Kits will include a DVD with a photo, voice sample and information such as height, weight, fingerprints, identifiable marks etc. There will also be DNA testing.

Local officials said the process, which will be conducted at the lodge, takes about 15-20 minutes and is for very young children, about one year old, through 17-year-olds.

As of Thursday morning, more than 60 people had pre-registered with several others interested.

The last time the Sumner lodge hosted the program, about 19 months ago, kits were made for 125 children.
