Big Day For Kids At The Moose, Sidney, Aug. 13

Aug. 13 will be a very busy day for the Sidney Moose Lodge. The Women of the Moose are offering three different events to benefit Sidney and the surrounding community.

Women of the Moose is teaming up from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. with Sidney’s local law enforcement to bring the tenth annual Child ID Event. The event is free for all children. Every child who participates in the event will have a picture and fingerprints taken along with being asked a few questions that only the child will know. All this is in an unlikely event a child is lost or abducted the information can be used in the search. The parents will all receive a CD copy with the child’s information. The Women of the Moose will be having their fourth annual Bake Sale and Lunch during the ID event as well.

For the first time, the Women of the Moose will be holding a Donut Eating Contest between the Sidney Police Force and Richland County Sheriff Officers at 11 a.m. The Sidney Moose Lodge is offering this to bring in more kids and provide an opportunity for the children in the community to see law enforcement officers in a light-hearted situation. The Women of the Moose will be purchasing the donuts from a local grocery store. Stacy Fischer said, “It’s a very important event to do for the children in the community.” Kelly Burke added, “It’s a good chance for the kids to see the law enforcement in a fun environment.”

This information is readily available to law enforcement if a child becomes lost or is abducted.” Come enjoy this fun community event.
