Santee general contractor selected for work at Pendleton

June 17, 2024 – Our town took a magical trip down memory lane today. The Model T Ford Club of America rolled into town for their 2024 National Tour. 

Dozens of these magnificent Model T’s lined our streets. It felt like stepping back in time.

The visitors took a stroll through our town’s rich history, from the old Lakeside Inn, the Auto Speedway route, made famous by racing legend Barney Oldfield, to our charming historic buildings and homes.

The Lakeside Historical Society opened their doors, welcoming everyone to explore the chapel, museum, Gift Shop, and the Speedway monument. It was a little slice of the past brought back to life.

Their visit was short, but the memories will last a lifetime. A huge thank you to the Model T Ford Club of America for stopping by and making the day in our hometown so special.

The U.S. Navy has awarded a $9 million contract to A&D General Contracting Inc. of Santee, for renovation of a bachelor enlisted quarters building at Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton in Oceanside. A Defense Department statement said the work will also include installation of a roof-mounted, 50-kilowatt photovoltaic system. A&D was selected from among six proposals received by the Naval Facilities Engineering Command Southwest in San Diego. The work is expected to be completed by September 2013.
