Antonito High School New York Trip

Hey Sheep Creeker! Check out this beautiful thank you note from Antonito, South Conejos High Schoolers.

After providing three scholarships to each high school in Conejos County, we turned to our local Antonito school. They needed help fulfilling the Senior Class’s dream of visiting New York City. Many had never been out of Colorado. So, yes, your donations did help make this dream come true.


More photos from their trip. Just look at those happy faces! ↙️

Fire Mitigation Efforts Rewarded

A big thank you to our Fire Mitigation Team, James Eanes, Bob Newcomer, and Eric Keck. Due to their tireless efforts and devotion of time to organizing, writing and completing grant requirements, and working with residents to reduce the wildfire risk in Sheep Creek, once again we have been awarded the Firewise certificate. 


⭐You may be able to receive a discount on your homeowner’s insurance if you let them know that you live in a Firewise community. 

Wondering what our Scholarship Committee has been doing?

As always, our Scholarship Committee has been busy behind the scenes boosting our local teachers.

Not only does our Scholarship Committee deliver the three scholarships to our area high schools each year, but throughout the school year, they continue to support our community with their time and thoughtfulness. And, they do it in the name of Sheep Creek. 

This fall they delivered goodies and cheer to our Antonito schools. Cookies, veggies, and fruit were delivered to the staff. Kleenex tissue, toilet paper, and Clorox wipes were given to each classroom.

They also received a $500 donation from Community Banks in LaJara!

Thank you, Vicki Bader, Debra Crowe, Mary Thorne, and Debra Castro! Your time, efforts, and thoughtfulness are greatly appreciated.

Location of SC AED’s

Greetings fellow Sheep Creek residents,

As you may recall our LOA purchased two Phillips AED’s (defibrillators) to be available to our residents if needed.

I recently contacted Phillips and asked how we should protect the AED from the inevitable cold weather we have here. They advised that in order to guarantee a strong battery charge we should take them in during the cold season.

Therefore, NEAL LUMMUS and RICH CONNELL have agreed to take possession of the AEDs until next spring or early summer when we have warmer temperatures and they can then be placed in the outside AED boxes.

If an emergency occurs and you need the use of an AED they are NOW located at (October 24, 2021):

          Lummus home, 637 River Run Dr.

          Connell home, 62 River Run Dr.

Thank You, Barb and Debra!

During Labor Day Weekend, Barb Forrest and Debra Crowe hosted an Art Sale on Barb’s front porch right by the main gate. If you haven’t seen any of Barb’s beautiful paintings of Sheep Creek or Deb’s inspired jewelry, take a look at the flier below of the event for a quick glimpse.

Sheep Creek Art Sale

Barb and Deb very generously donated a portion of their sales to the Sheep Creek Scholarship Fund. Not only was the Art Sale a very fun event, but these two talented Sheep Creek artists contributed $1,200 of their sales!

Thank you, Barb and Deb for your time, effort, and your talents as well as this very generous contribution to our Sheep Creek Scholarship Fund.
