A commemorative piece is being made available to help raise funds to maintain the Lowell Covered Bridge in Lowell, Ore.
There will be unnumbered and numbered versions of the Lowell Covered Bridge Commemorative medal, to be issued in conjunction with Lowell?s Blackberry Jam Festival July 28-30.
To celebrate Lane County?s heritage and history, the Lane County Public Works Department introduced the first of 17 commemorative medals in November of 2005. The Lowell Covered Bridge Commemorative medal will be the second to be released. The first piece, now sold out, was priced at $20. Each commemorative medal is .999 fine silver and marked with the year minted.
The Lowell Covered Bridge, located just off State Highway 58 at the Lowell intersection, will benefit from sales of the medal. For more on the festival visit www.blackberryjamfestival.com.
