Song Yook Orphanage

June 02, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Yesterday, Da Vinci Photos traveled with Harry S Truman Masonic Lodge #1727 to the Song Yook Children's Orphanage in Songtan, Korea. We had a wonderful day barbecuing hamburgers for the children, having water fights and visiting.

We were joined by members of the Widow's Sons Masonic Riding Association and YJMC. Tony Manned the grilled and made sure that everyone was well fed.

The sun was beaming down and the children seemed to be more interested in the sodas that Dave Wolfe had brought than they were any hamburgers. Soon all the kids had plenty of sugar coursing through their system and they were properly hyped.

Plenty of burgers were devoured, by the adults and by the children, and a good time was had by all.

The director mentioned to me that if there was anyone willing to donate lightly used clothes, they would be happily accepted by children of all ages.

If you have clothes that you would like to donate, you can contact us through our email, or bring them to the studio.

The Truman Lodge is also happily accepting donations. The orphanage is their main charitable organization. They also have donated greatly to relief efforts in the Philippines and several other charitable causes. If you are interested in Freemasonry and would like to contact the lodge, their website is located at http://trumanlodge1727.com.

The event was definitely a success and could not have done as well without the expert work of the kitchen staff

Or the help of YJMC President, Dave Wolfe, who donated the use of his trailer and his time.

We made several new friends on this trip and greatly look forward to the next time we visit.

Don't forget, the children need your lightly used clothes or anything else you feel you can donate. There are about 75 children at the orphanage. They are well taken care of and very polite and friendly. Feel free to contact us about future visits. We hope to see you there!
