For those who haven’t been out to visit it yet, The Range is open and doing a pretty booming business with the new, state-of-the-art indoor shooting facility.  Owners Austin and Leslie Harlan visited with Sunrise Rotary recently to explain just what happens inside the new $3 million building.
Located in the old Garretson cold storage building, just at the base of Garretson Grade, The Range is Austin’s attempt at changing the image of a “shooting range.”
“We focus on safety instruction, education, and proper training,” he explained. “People with firearms need to be able to use them safely.”
The Range staff of 12 provides classes for those who have never held a firearm to the more experienced. As a Class 2 licensed facility, they also provide training and education for area SWAT teams and police departments, as well as manufacture the fire arms for several police departments.
With professional trained instructors; a huge retail store; a safe, comfortable environment; and even a coffee bar, The Range offers memberships and walk-in packages to suite just about any shooter’s desires.  You can check them out at
To build awareness around domestic violence, The Allstate Foundation has partnered with 27 YWCAs in a month long "Purple Purse Campaign." Backed by Allstate, the YWCA team that raises the most money will receive an additional $100,000!
Similar to the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, the Purple Purse Campaign hopes to shed light on domestic abuse. It is more prevalent than many think: one in four women will experience abuse at some time in her life. That is more than the number of women who will get breast cancer. It's past time to do something about it.
Wednesday, September 10, Sunrise Rotarian and Director of Development for the Yakima YWCA, Amy Flynn, asked for Sunrise Rotary's support in helping with the Purple Purse Campaign. Currently, Team Yakima is on the leaderboard, but is still several thousand dollars behind first place. If you haven't yet, help support survivors of domestic violence by donating here.
