Solano Republican Women Federated
Day at the Range

Firing Range Safety

Marksmanship

In effort to honor our Second Amendment and the rights it bestows upon us, nearly half our group spent an afternoon at a local shooting range owned and operated by veterans of each military branch. We spent over an hour learning about gun safety, and hands-on training in loading, unloading, and otherwise properly handling several types of weapons. We then spent the rest of our time target shooting with our own personal "assistant", who continued to provide more detailed training on hand position and other nuances. It was a fantastic outing with as many personal takeaways as there were attendees. Some have been shooting most of their lives, others hadn't shot in decades, and some had never held a gun before. Those with experience enjoyed helping and watching the others, and as for the rest, although everyone loved the "field trip", about half won't shoot again, and half will. Overall: a fantastic experience.

Dilenna Harris

As a child, there were two things the daughter of Master Sergeant Dan and Barbara Hughes knew for sure – First, service would always be a part of her life. Second, Vacaville would always be home.

Today, Dilenna Harris continues her commitment to service on the Vacaville City Council and through the numerous non-profit organizations that have benefitted from her leadership through the years. From promoting economic development as Chair of the Vacaville Chamber of Commerce, to protecting veterans and Travis Air Force Base as Chair of the Travis Regional Armed Forces Committee, there’s no doubt about Dilenna’s service to her hometown.

As an entrepreneur, Dilenna blazed new trails for women in the construction industry, creating good local jobs and becoming one of the first women to earn the prestigious designation of Western Regional Master Builder Designation. As a non-profit executive, Dilenna created and instituted development programs for a respected education system and repeated her successes at the Solano County Library Foundation. Eventually, Dilenna was recruited by a major regional health care system to lead their efforts in community involvement.

As a City Councilmember, Dilenna tackles issues head-on. She’s pushed for fiscal responsibility while protecting services, for crime prevention and for new economic development – new jobs for our workforce. As a member of the Council during one of the nation’s worst recessions, Dilenna helped the City weather the storm while continuing to provide much needed services.

Through her work, volunteer service and public service on the City Council, Dilenna continues to promote life-long learning and literacy for young people. She’s building partnerships between business, non-profits and government agencies to share resources and boost the value of every penny of tax dollars. She was recently recognized for her work as Woman of the Year in the 3rd Congressional District.

Dilenna and her husband, Rob, a 37-year member of IBEW, raised three children here in Vacaville, and are enjoying life as grandparents to their seven grandchildren.
