The Scholarship Committee would like to thank all those that contributed to the success of our annual fund raising in order to provide scholarships to 3 awesome local students here in Conejos County. We truly appreciate those sending checks even though you were unable to attend the annual meeting. We could not do it without the financial donations along with the hard work of the scholarship committee, and contributions of time, auction items, food, and of course of wonderful entertainment from Chris Collins. We always look forward to this annual event! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Hi everyone! This is Leah Thomas of Leah Thomas and Chris Collins, your Sheep Creek neighbors on Tall Pines Trail. Vicki Bader, our wonderful long-time secretary has been wanting to update our Sheep Creek newsletter header. This is our current newsletter header:
Since through my business I have access to a variety of photos, Vicki asked me to work on a new header. Well, I thought it would be easy, right? Big horn sheep, mountains, rivers, creeks…so many possibilities. I looked through thousands of photos. Yes, literally! But there just wasn’t a photo that really represented this beautiful place.
I was frustrated and maybe just a little bit irritable. Then – light bulb! Of course! Who would have the perfect photo of this perfect place???!!! YOU! Sheep Creek Landowners… I know!
Finally to the point. We’re having a Sheep Creek photo contest!
It’ll be fun. It’ll be exciting. It’ll be less frustrating than looking at thousands of photos taken by other people who have never been to this special place.
- Look through your Sheep Creek photos.
- Select a photo that you think best represents Sheep Creek.
- If you can’t decide on just one, select two, but no more than two, please.
- Send your photo to firstname.lastname@example.org before September 1st.
What happens then:
- Between Saturday September 2nd and Saturday September 9th go to our Sheep Creek web site, log in, and vote for the two photos you think best represent the feel and beauty of Sheep Creek.
- The voting results will be posted on our website Sunday, September 10th.
- I will incorporate the photo with the most votes into a design that will work for our newsletter header, sidebar, or footer.
- All photos entered into our contest will be added to our Sheep Creek photo gallery on our web site.
- Just a note: By entering your photo into the contest, you are agreeing that your photo will be posted on our web site and/or used for the Sheep Creek Landowners letterhead.
★This is exciting stuff!! Well, for me. Remember, I live here year-round and it’s a little – okay, a lot – quiet. This really is exciting stuff. As far as I know, we’ve never had a Sheep Creek contest. So-o-o-o…don’t be shy. Send me those photos. I can’t wait to see what you’ve got! ★

Three Conejos County students were awarded $1500 each from the SCLA Scholarship Fund. Thanks to the generous donations of our Conejos Canyon Friends and Sheep Creek Land Owners, and of course, Chris Collins and the Boulder Canyon Band for putting on an incredible concert. We could not have provided these scholarships without everyone’s help and contributions.
We also received a very appreciative thank you letter from the South Conejos School District for the contributions of back packs and school supplies at the beginning of this school year.

Over Labor Day weekend, many Sheep Creek neighbors and their friends and families joined together to clean up our subdivision and protect it from fire danger. After several years of growth a lot of wood and brush had accumulated through most of the areas in the neighborhood, it was time to take care of it. Mitch Frank brought his chipper from Chama and for three days, volunteers donated their time and hard work to complete the job.
Special thanks to James and Sharon Eanes and their family for leading the effort. This was an enormous job and all who helped deserve our gratitude: James & Sharon Eanes, Jake Eanes, Neal & Kako Lummus, Michael Hardin, Earl Morse, Em Curzi, Vicki & Doug Bader and family members, Eric Keck and family members, Bob Newcomber, Clint & Debra Crowe, Leah Thomas, Rick Connell, Carolyn Buckingham, and all the families and guests of each of these volunteers that pitched in. THANK YOU!!!
There is a new application in the Members Section of the Architectural Committee, Pending Construction. SCLA Members have 10 days from posting to review the application and make their comments to the ARC committee. Thank you.
