Teeing Off for Kids

Golf Classic

6th Annual Golf Classic

Calling all golfers, or anyone who just likes to “putter” around.  The Santee School District Foundation and the Santee Chamber of Commerce are presenting the 6th Annual Golf Classic to raise funds for the Santee Schools on Wednesday, June 24.  Money from the Classic is used to provide additional funding for the district to help support the visual and performing arts and technology.

The day kicks off with registration and lunch starting at 11:00 am, followed by a shotgun start at 1:00 pm.  After the round ends, a no-host bar and reception starts at 5:00 pm, with banquet and awards ceremony beginning at 6:00 pm.  Along with the banquet there will be prizes and live and silent auctions, all to help the schools.

You can sign up to take part in the classic as a player, a sponsor, or a donor for the auctions – or all of the above.  Sign up starts at $100 for the round and dinner, and $30 for any additional dinner guests.  You can also get a VIP package for an additional $25.  If you are interested you can help sponsor the Classic at levels from Gold Business Sponsor at $100 on up.  The deadline for sponsorship is June 10 and the player deadline is June 17.

Santee Going to the Dogs – At Last

I just came across a link on Facebook to an article in the San Diego Union-Tribune about a recent decision by the Santee City Council.  The Council recently voted to make three parks – Woodglen Vista, Mast, and Big Rock – off-leash dog parks at certain times of the day.  This will be a one-year pilot project, and will depend greatly on how well owners can supervise their canine charges.  There will be a confirmation vote, which will probably be a formality, and then the program could go into effect by the end of the month.

From what I have seen, and based on the owners I have met at parks, this should not be a problem.  The only concern will be if the less-vigilant owners start coming down and letting their dogs run crazy in the parks.  So right now, I am asking all Santee dog owners to plan to be on their best behavior once this begins.  Clean up after your dogs, make sure they will respond to you right away if they start getting into trouble, and always watch where they are and what they are doing.  And be willing to speak up if you see someone not being responsible for their pet.  Taking your dog to the park is just like taking a child to the park – except you don’t have to take them into the restroom.
