Mississippi Orphans Go Sledding Highland Park, Bloomington, 1963

Group of orphans going sledding, 1963

Pastor J.H. Yohe of First Pentecostal Church of Bloomington gives a sled a push at Highland Park Golf Course a day or two before Christmas 1963. The boys were part of a 40-orphan contingent from Tupelo, Mississippi treated by Yohe and his church to a ten-day vacation in Bloomington homes.
