July 7, 2012 (San Diego) -- The San Diego Half Marathon, a one-of-a kind race and fundraising event with 100 percent of its net proceeds benefiting local charities, today proudly announced that $100,000 is being donated to local San Diego-area charities from its hugely successful inaugural race last March. San Diego-area charity partners from the 2012 race include Lake Murray Playground Project, San Diego Police Department Communications Division Kitchen/Break room Renovation, Toys for Joy, Robb Field and Hickman Field.
April 6, 2012 (Santee) -- Santee Lakes is getting a facelift on Lakes 1 and 5. The park is replacing three old picnic/gazebo structures and an outdated playground with new up‐to‐date structures. This will give visitors an opportunity to picnic in a beautiful setting and will add much needed shade, especially during the summer months.
Padre Dam’s Board of Directors and the Director of Park and Recreation for Santee Lakes break ground on the construction site for the new three‐tiered gazebo.
