BURLINGTON, VT --- In an effort to promote child safety within the Burlington community and the state of Vermont, the Vermont Lake Monsters and New York Life have teamed up to provide Child Identification services at Lake Monsters home games this season, both the New York-Penn League team and New York Life announced today.
Agents from New York Life's local office will be at historic Centennial Field during approximately 20 home games over the summer to create and distribute personalized child identification cards for no cost. The Child ID card includes the child's fingerprints, photo and other pertinent information to be helpful in case of an emergency.
"New York Life and its Vermont General Office are excited to team up with the Lake Monsters this summer to bring their Child ID services to the people of Vermont," the Insurance Company said in a statement. "Both New York Life and the Lake Monsters care about children and families and this is a natural partnership-as stewards of the community we want families to be healthy, safe and successful."
"We are a team and venue that focuses children, families and the community and when New York Life approached us about this partnership, it was an easy decision," Lake Monsters General Manager Nate Cloutier. "This free service will help keep children safe, and that is what its all about."
So come out to the ballpark, take in a game, and while there, stop by the New York Life tent and learn about how you can keep your children and family safe, both now and in the future.
