The View from Jamestown: June 2017 Edition
What’s Happening At TCC?
K-Show – Guten Tag!
For the first time ever, TCC hosted an exhibit at the K-Show in Dusseldorf, Germany. Over 230,000 visitors with ties to the rubber and plastics industry navigated the halls of the Messe Dusseldorf. Our international sales team valued face-to-face interactions with customers and suppliers from around the world and enjoyed the hospitality offered at the U.S. Pavilion Exhibitors lounge. In their spare time, our team explored the city sights, especially the promenade along the Rhine River.
TCC Recently Sponsored Project Scientist’s Charlotte Excursion
“It was an eye-opening day to see such enthusiasm from children as young as five-years-old asking women on the trading floor about their experiences” reflected Jessica Baker, TCC Marketing Manager. “Project Scientist’s emphasis on molding a better future for the next generation is precisely the passion that fueled our team at TCC to start our Love Chemistry campaign.”
The Annual Colorado Hunt
Our crew of customers, employees, and suppliers headed to Colorado this October to enjoy a week outdoors. It was a record-breaking year for the crew as they brought home the largest amount of game in the trip’s history, which will feed many families in the months to come. The week was filled with comradery, early mornings, and plenty of camouflage.

Play Fore Playmakers Charity Golf Tournament
Commentary from Jay Munsey, Tournament Director
The 4th Annual Play fore Playmakers Charity Golf Tournament to benefit the Life is Good Kids Foundation (www.ligplaymakers.org) was held on Monday, Jul 18th at the Sterling National Country Club.
The Life is Good Kids Foundation is a non-profit social work organization with a mission to spread the power of optimism to help kids overcome poverty, violence, and illness.
The Chemical Company (TCC) started off the day by sponsoring the Tee-Off Breakfast. In addition, TCC standout Joe Daversa also sponsored a foursome and hosted customers at the day-long event.
Red Sox legend Luis Tiant was also in attendance playing a round of golf and staying for pictures & autographs during the 19th Hole Reception. Luis’ foursome was an online auction item leading up to the tournament and three gentlemen had the honor of being the highest bidders to join Tiant for the day. In addition, there was a professional long ball driver on a par 5 hole from Charity Golf International. Mike Watson, whose longest drive in competition is 447 yards would hit for each foursome as a fundraiser.
The tournament was able to raise about $34,000, thanks in part to sponsors like TCC!
