A local group is aiming to solve a problem, focusing on long-range plans to raise funds and provide a place of safety.
The Well Armed Woman (TWAW) Mother Lode chapter recently formed to provide gun safety and self-defense certification courses. The group, started and helmed by Cherie Sintes-Glover, is supporting an effort to build a gun owners’ facility, to be named Coe Shooting Center, that will ultimately generate revenue for the Foothill Communities Parks and Recreation (FCPR), the agency that will ultimately build the facility.
“Basically, (FCPR is) working toward raising funds to finish off the conditional use permitting,” Sintes-Glover said. Once that’s done, FCPR will begin the process of building a facility on Watertown Road in Valley Springs. The property was donated by Tom Coe, and plans for the facility were developed and donated by Dave Tanner.
