This is a busy weekend here in Santee. First of all the 10th annual Santee Pancake Breakfast kicks off a two-day run on Friday 11/14 at Santee Fire Station #4 located at 8950 Cottonwood (the corner of Cottonwood and Mission Gorge). Breakfast starts at 7:00am and lasts until 10:30am both Friday and Saturday, and includes pancakes, eggs, sausage, coffee, and juice. The Breakfast is sponsored by the Santee Firefighters and Santee sheriff’s Department and all proceeds go to help needy families in the community. If you need more information call the Santee Fire Department (619-258-4151) or the Sheriff’s Crime Prevention Unit (619-956-4022). Stop by and help out this great cause.
Also this weekend, for Chamber of Commerce members, Costco is having an exclusive shopping event on Saturday 11/15 from 7:45pm to 9:00pm. They will have refreshments and lots of gift ideas for you to check out. You must be a Chamber member or guest and a Costco member to take advantage of this event, but there are so many benefits of both that it would be well worth joining them. For more information you can call Patty at 619-562-3227 (ext 240) or the Santee Costco at 619-562-2908.
And don’t forget, Trout Season is going strong at Santee Lakes. There were 740 anglers for opening day, with a 10lb 5oz trout coming out of Lake #4 Saturday, and an 11lb 12oz fish coming out of the same lake on Sunday. To see who was catching what, check out the Fishing Report. There were 40 specially tagged trout included in the stocking (good for prizes), and only 3 had been caught as of the most recent posting.
