Wanted – Santee Yearbooks

yearbook1 Do you have a yearbook from your years at a Santee, CA school that you don’t know what to do with?   You don’t want to throw them away…they were expensive and carry some wonderful memories!   But they are sitting on a shelf or in a box somewhere and you never look at them anymore.

DONATE THEM TO THE SANTEE HISTORICAL SOCIETY!   We would love to have your old yearbooks.  It doesn’t matter what year they are from.  Any day that that has passed is HISTORY!  And that means it belongs where it will be loved, cared for, and remembered forever.  What better place for those school memories to be than in a museum… like the SANTEE HISTORICyearbook3AL SOCIETY’S MUSEUM!   ♥

Call us at (619) 449-2024 …  or drop it by the museum (the green and white Edgemoor Barn at 9200 Magnolia Ave.)  Hours are as posted.

The Santee Historical Society is a 501(C)3 nonprofit.  Your donations may be tax-deductible.

Indoor/Outdoor Carpeting

Our office in the barn can use some new indoor/outdoor carpeting installed. The carpet that is there is very old and very worn.

Concrete Coating

If you have been in the Barn you may have noticed the throw rugs on various places. They are covering up the cracks in the concrete. We could use the donation of product and services to have the concrete floors coated.
