The Peña Adobe Historical Society welcomes Solano County Sheriff’s Posse on Saturday, August 5, 2017 from 11 am to 2 pm!  The park is located at Peña Adobe Road off of Interstate 80 to the left of the Lagoon Valley Regional Park entrance.

The Solano County Sheriff’s Posse has enjoyed a long-standing tradition of service with the Sheriff’s Office since 1947. Comprised of citizens who volunteer their time in the service of their community, each year members of the Sheriff’s Posse contribute thousands of hours of their time, the use of their horses and their equipment in support of the Sheriff’s Office.  Members of the Sheriff’s Posse attend numerous community events each year as ambassadors for the Sheriff and as an example of how beneficial partnerships with the community can be for law enforcement.  Come to the Adobe and see their amazing horses and meet the members of the Sheriff’s Posse!

 

Location:

The Peña Adobe Park is located in Vacaville’s rural southwest section, just off Interstate 80 adjacent to Lagoon Valley Park
