Eclipse Quilt Overall t

The total solar eclipse in Scio was perfect and fabulous!

We Have A Winner!

In a gala affair at the City Council meeting on Monday, Sept. 11 Rosie Booth, the creator of the "Sol Winked Out" quilt, drew a winning ticket for her quilt. AND the winner is Ms. Barbara Fowler who visited Scio during the eclipse. Barbara is from California; we have mailed the quilt to her after carefully packaging it according to Rosie's instructions. Barbara promises to send a photo and comments when she receives the quilt.

Below are two pictures of the raffle drawing event.

Proceeds from the sale of the raffle tickets are presented to LaVonne Murray, Scio's librarian, by Roger Gaither, representing the Scio Community Improvement Organization, i.e. S.C.I.O. Chad Weaver, mayor of Scio and owner of Weaver Seed, commissioned the quilt.

Sale of our "Sol Winked Out" t-shirt has come to an end. This was a wonderful success as a fun fund raiser. The margin from the sale of the t-shirts goes to the Scio Community Improvement Organization specifically to underwrite community improvement projects. We're proud of the many volunteers who have come together and donated their time and efforts to make our little community a better place in which to live. Thanks sincerely to the many people who purchased the shirts! These have all been printed and mailed. If you ordered a shirt and do not receive it soon, please contact us at sciocitymgr@smt-net.com. Thanks.

Come Visit Scio

The city of Scio sits astride Thomas Creek, a year-round stream that flows from the slopes of snow peak to the confluence of the North and South Santiam Rivers. It is one of the oldest settled communities in the mid-Willamette Valley. The first pioneers arrived in 1845, a gristmill was established in 1856, and the town was incorporated in 1866.

Scio and the area around were once served by at least nine covered bridges; five covered bridges remain in daily service now; two were demolished and two have been moved to neighboring communities as park features. We invite you to tour our five authentic covered bridges. Click above on "Bridges" tab.
