INDUSTRY – Rep. Jim Marshall (R-Beaver/Butler) has canceled the concealed carry seminar scheduled Saturday, March 21, at the Midland Sportsman Club because of coronavirus health concerns. He also canceled the veterans outreach hours planned for April 2 and May 7.

“Because COVID-19 is spreading quickly in the United States, public health officials are calling for social distancing as a way to slow and limit the spread,” Marshall said. “The closure of schools, libraries, government offices and much more is absolutely a disruption to our lives, but we need to focus more on our safety during this critical time.”

A concealed carry seminar has already been scheduled for the fall. It will be held on Saturday, Oct. 17, from 10 a.m. to noon at the Big Beaver Borough VFD, 621 Friendship Road, Darlington. Everyone who was interested in the event scheduled for this weekend is encouraged to attend.

Marshall is also closing his office to visitors for two weeks, beginning today. He will reassess the need for a continued closure at the end of the month.

For the next two weeks, state services will still be available by calling the district office at 724-847-1352 or visiting his website at
