If you’re interested in getting a horse, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is having a wild horse and burro adoption this weekend (July 17-19) at the Pillsbury Ranch at 13036 Willow Road in Lakeside. There will be about three dozen yearling horses up for adoption. They will have preview time from 1:00-6:00 pm on Friday (7/17) and adoption time from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm on Saturday and 8:00 am to 12:00 pm on Sunday.
If you are interested, you can get more information at the BLM website.
On Wednesday, July 15, the Santee Solutions Coalition is hosting a “Retailer Roundtable” for all alcohol retailers in Santee. This forum, supported by the Santee Chamber of Commerce and Santee Councilmember John Minto, is an opportunity for off-site alcohol retailers (type 29 & 21) to share ideas with community members, the Alcohol & Beverage Control, and City representatives to help prevent youth access to alcohol.
The Roundtable will be held in Sunshine Hall at the United Methodist Church, 8964 N. Magnolia Ave., from 5:00-6:30 pm. At the forum there will be information about assessments conducted on local retailers and special toolkits that can support the safe sale of alcohol in Santee.
If you are an off-site alcohol retailer, someone who works regularly with local youth, or a concerned community member, be sure to put this on your schedule, even if it is rather short notice.
