Photo of the Week
Kaylee and Koree Markko discovered a fledgling hummingbird in their yard in the Pine Meadow Subdivision. The family left it out where they could keep an eye on it and sure enough, mom and dad came along to feed it throughout the day, and eventually the baby flew up into a tree where they were able to continue to watch the parents come and take care of it. It was a fun and fascinating experience for them! If you have a photo of Spring Grove you would like to share, email it here .

Blast from the Past
Blacksmith Nick Klein is seated in front of his blacksmith shop at 7711 Blivin with some friends who seem to be hamming it up. This shop was later replaced with the brick building that still stands. Blacksmiths were the first auto mechanics, transitioning to the new technology, and the new building became Nick's Garage. He also pioneered the first portable feed grinder which allowed his workers to go from farm to farm to grind feed. Hatchery Pond can be seen behind the building in this circa 1915 photo.
