Free Child ID at Beetles game on Sunday

The Alexandria Beetles and New York Life will hold the first game of their Child ID program Sunday, June 24 at 5:05 p.m. at Knute Nelson Memorial Ballpark. Representatives from New York Life will be on hand to sign up children for free ID cards. New York life will be making identification cards with a photo, digital fingerprint and other important information about the child. The cards are designed to be carried by members of the family and be readily available in the event that the child may go missing.

New York life has been involved in many child safety events where they distribute child IDs and stress the importance of children practicing safe habits at home, at play or anywhere in the community they may be.

Sunday is also the second chance for area elementary students to redeem their Ringo's reading program tickets.

The Alexandria Beetles are in their 12th season in the Northwoods League. For ticket information please visit
