The Community Totem Pole was dedicated during a reception on Saturday, November 17, 2018. Students now in sixth grade at Porter Ridge Middle School and current Poplin students who worked on the project were invited along with their families to attend an unveiling of the project. During the dedication Mrs. Helms said, “I feel that it truly represents our community, not only in subject and sentiment, but also in the process.”
