Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — A free women's self-defense and safety workshop will be held from 1 to 5 p.m. May 3 at USA Self Defense Center, 6007 Brocton Drive (off Robinson Road).
Women who want to attend are asked to sign up by Saturday.
The workshop, organized by a Girl Scout undertaking her Gold Award project, will teach participants practical maneuvers for self-defense. Speakers will offer tips for avoiding dangerous situations and keeping oneself safe.
Food and giveaways are part of the program.

The Gold Award is the highest award that a Girl Scout can receive; it is equivalent to the Boy Scout Eagle rank, according to Dawn Dominguez-Salerno, Lockport Service Unit manager for Girl Scouts of Western New York.
