Sheriff’s Office and Masonic Lodge Join Efforts for Child Safety The Washington County Virginia Sheriff’s Office and the Abingdon and York Masonic Lodges have joined forces to provide fingerprinting and child identification packets during this year’s Plum Alley Day. “This is the nineteenth year in a row that the Masonic lodges have allowed the Sheriff’s Office to assist in this very worthwhile event,” stated Sheriff Newman. A child identification booth will be set up at the residence of Kenny and Doris Shuman, 164 West Valley Street, Abingdon, VA. Banners will be displayed to help identify the location. Last year, Sheriff’s Office and Lodge representatives fingerprinted and photographed over 100 children. Parents are asked to retain the child ID packets in a safe location where they can be easily obtained if they are needed. “The fingerprinting and child ID program will begin at 9:00 a.m.,” said Sheriff Newman. This year’s Plum Alley Day is May 26th.
