Poplar Grove News

We have some baby birds that have been chirping in the chimneys at the Poplar Grove church the last two Sundays, especially if someone gets loud or drops a book! It makes us all smile! I don’t know what kind of birds are in there, but Thursday afternoon after the three of us had finished cleaning the church and went outside, there were dozens of swallows flying around the church and cemetery, getting bugs.
