A retired Indiana State Police trooper will speak about how women are becoming more empowered after going through firearms training.

Tami Lykins Watson, the retired trooper and a lead instructor at Watson Chambers Defense Institute in Columbus, will speak during a third-anniversary meeting of the Well Armed Woman Southern Indiana Chapter from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday.

The chapter’s first meeting was in February 2014, when more than 50 women attended to learn about shooting or improving their skills. The chapter — led by Marti Finke — has members from Bartholomew, Jennings and Jackson counties, as well as other nearby counties.

Sunday’s chapter meeting will be held at the Sandcreek Conservation Club, County Road S. 600 East near Elizabethtown. Cost to attend is $5, payable in cash or by check.

Women can RSVP for the program or get directions online at twawsouthernin.com or at facebook.com/twawsouthernin
