Masons and the Baxter Police Department will register youth into the Minnesota KidsID Child Safety Program as a free, community service from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, March 2, at the Northland Arboretum, located behind Brainerd's Westgate Mall at 14250 Conservation Drive.

Aurora Masonic Lodge 100 volunteers will take photos, fingerprint children and obtain a DNA swab. If a child is ever missing, the kit provided saves precious time so parents might be reunited with their children. The kit gives parents the ability to instantly provide law enforcement with the information they need to know.

The program of the Grand Lodge Ancient Free and Accepted Masons of Minnesota works closely with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children's Take 25 program, which stresses taking time to talk to children to help keep them safe.

Also at the event, fresh homemade pancakes, sausage and all the fixings prepared by local farmers will be offered at Cabin Fever Breakfast, a fundraiser for the Northland Arboretum. The Masons will prepare pancakes to order and toss them to those attending so they can catch them on their plate.

Also on the buffet will be Von Hanson's sausage, Clay Hill Farm pure maple syrup, North Central Beekeepers' honey butter, Coco Moon coffee, hot chocolate, juice and milk. Cost is $10 per person and free for children age 4 and younger.
