With the end of Summer nearing, many activities and events are dropping off the radar.  No more Summer Concerts or Movies by the Lake.  But there are still a few things to do around Santee.

Santee Senior Club: This is sponsored by the City of Santee.  The Senior Club meets every Wednesday morning from 9:00-11:30 am at the Teen Center at Santee Lakes.  This week they are having an Ice Cream Social, so if you are a Senior or know a Senior who might be interested, this is the place to be.

Santee City Council Meeting: The City Council meets on Wednesday, August 26, at 7:00 pm in the Council Chamber at 10601 N. Magnolia Ave.  For a copy of the Agenda, click on the link above.
