Armanini to Host Concealed Carry Seminars

 

HARRISBURG – State Rep. Mike Armanini (R-Clearfield/Elk) invites residents of the 75th Legislative District to attend one of the concealed carry seminars he is hosting during the month of February.

The seminars will both take place from 6-8 p.m. on the following dates:

  • Thursday, Feb. 10 - Johnsonburg Fire Department, 99 Clarion Road, Johnsonburg. Presenters will be Elk County District Attorney Tom Coppello, Sheriff Todd Caltagarone and Deputy Sheriff Martin Rosenfeld.
  • Wednesday, Feb. 16 - VFW Post 813, 114 Fuller Ave., DuBois. Presenters will be Clearfield County District Attorney Ryan Sayers, Clearfield County Chief Deputy Sheriff Rob Thomas and Elk County Deputy Sheriff Deputy Martin Rosenfeld.

Question and answer sessions will be held following the presentations at both events. For planning purposes, Armanini would like anyone wishing to attend either seminar to register in advance by calling his St Marys district office at 1-814-781-6301 or his DuBois district office at 1-814-375-4688.
