At 6 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 16 members of the Well Armed Woman Shooting Chapter, Tioga County, Pa. will meet at Perkins Restaurant, 96 Dorsett Heights in Mansfield for an evening meal and a planning session. The December planning meeting was canceled due to inclement weather.

On Jan. 16, members will plan monthly meetings and gather ideas for chapter fundraisers and other 2020 events.
