I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend. Shepherd Chamber member Bruce McKinzie is holding a ‘Woman’s Self Defense Seminar for Mom and Daughter’ on May 15 from 12-2 PM. The cost is just $35 for the two! I have seen a short display of Bruce showing how women can escape being attacked and this is a great idea for moms and their girls.
