March was Women's History Month, and to honor women's history, we focused on women in the manufacturing industry. On our News Blog, you'll find the history of women working in this industry, how current events changed the scope of work and how women are still trailblazing through the industry today.
We highlighted several local women working in different companies within our parks. They gave us insight into their roles. From technician to plant manager, their stories are worth reading and passing on!
Every January, the staff at TDC come together to create a list of BHAGS. Big, hairy, audacious goals. This year our goals include, building a new building, continuing professional development, and implementing more sustainable practices by reducing our waste.
Our eco-friendly tips are easy changes that you can make in your home or at work.

TDC Sponsors Manufacturing Tours with Beekmantown Middle School
Nearly 70 middle schoolers toured manufacturing companies in the beginning of April. The purpose of this event was to pique interest in STEM and local opportunities for 8th graders.
The planning began in December and after months of COVID restrictions, the students were finally able to visit Camso/Michelin, Norsk Titanium, Mold Rite Packaging, SpencerARL and Vapor Stone Rail Systems.
"The event, organized by both the City and the Town of Plattsburgh in honor of Earth Day, encouraged residents to clean up their local park, beach, sidewalk or other locales."
The City of Plattsburgh made this event a breeze to participate in. Garbage bags, gloves and lawn bags were donated by Lowe's and residents could come to City Hall, grab their materials and clean any section of the city or town they chose! A TDC staff member participated by cleaning the entrance of the Terry Gordan bike path.
