The Rotarian of the Year award is given to a Santee-Lakeside Rotarian that exemplifies the principles of the Rotary 4-Way Test, “Service Above Self”, and that Rotarians are
“People of Action”. This year we are proud to announce our Rotarian of the Year is Neferti Kinser.
 
Here are just a few reasons why Neferti earned this honor:
  • Even when she was on vacation she made it a point to attend meetings.
     
  • If for any reason she couldn’t make it to a meeting she would always check in with someone and let them know how she would miss being with us.
     
  • She could be found at almost every volunteer opportunity.
     
  • She helped interview students for our club’s education programs.
     
  • She also helped a lot with projects done at home, from writing cards, to collecting goods, to knitting hats.
     
  • While Neferti is quiet, she has a heart of gold and truly embodies “Service Above Self”.
 
 
Even with setbacks this year due to Covid and only having virtual meetings, the Santee-Lakeside Rotary Club was able to achieve a lot over the last year. Here are some of the accomplishments our amazing members helped make happen because of their commitment to “Service Above Self”: 
  • Welcomed a new member, Mike Aiken
     
  • Recognized for 60 years of service to the community by the City of Santee
     
  • Donated $1,750 in supplies to Buddy’s Backpacks through a District Grant and helped distribute them to students in need
     
  • Celebrated Gene’s 90th birthday with a drive thru event
     
  • Visited Erna at Jimmy’s
     
  • Adopted and stocked Little Free Libraries in Santee and Lakeside
     
  • Collected men’s shoes for St. Vincent de Paul
     
  • 3 groups volunteered at PAWS for purple hearts
     
  • Supported End Polio Now through our happy bucket, purchasing ceramics at the La Mesa fundraiser, and raised awareness with purple pinkies
     
  • The club was recognized at the Foundation Seminar for our annual donation to End Polio Now
     
  • Collected bolt bag items for City Hope La Mesa
     
  • Wrote kindness cards for UCSD Healthcare workers, Meals on Wheels, Serving Seniors and St. Paul’s Senior Services
     
  • Hand wrote 400 holiday cards and donated 21 pairs of socks for our local seniors through the SMOAC Elves program
     
  • Assembled 1,300 boxes for Santee Santas which were used to provide food and toys for local families
On Saturday, May 22, 2021 members of the Rotary Club of Santee-Lakeside rolled up their sleeves and got dirty while beautifying the playground at the East County Transitional Living Center (ECTLC) with weed pulling, hedge trimming, and landscape management. It was a lot of hard work, but the transformation was worth it. The playground is used by families that are helped out of homelessness by ECTLC through their various programs. For more information on ECTLC and their mission to provide transitional housing and restore lives visit https://www.ectlc.org/.
 
 
2021 Rotarians at Work Day

2021 Rotarians at Work Day
 
Residents of the Meadowbrook and Mission Gorge Villas Mobile Home Parks in Santee had a helping hand from the Rotary Club of Santee-Lakeside on Saturday, April 24th for Rotarians at Work Day. In partnership with the Santee Mobile Home Owners Action Committee (SMOAC), club members cleared overgrowth and weeds to beautify the yards of residents in need. Club members worked hard, but it was all worth it to see the smiles of the residents.
 
Rotarians at Work Day takes place the last Saturday of every April. What started in 2006 as a joint effort between two Rotary Districts (one in the United States and one in Mexico), has grown to a service day for Rotarians around the world. Each year, Rotary clubs identify hands-on projects that all members can participate in to help their local community. The Rotary Club of Santee-Lakeside is proud to participate in this day of service. For more information on Rotarians at Work Day visit RotariansatWork.org.
