COLUMBUS - Free child identification kits and information to help consumers protect themselves from identity theft, scams and deceptive business practices will be offered at next week’s Cherokee County Fair, thanks to Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt.

“Protecting Kansas children and consumers are important priorities for our office,” Schmidt said. “I hope folks will stop by our booth to learn more about how they can keep themselves and their families safe.”

The booth will be open from 6 to 10 p.m., July 25 through 29. The fairgrounds are located at 100 E. Country Rd. in Columbus.
