Girl Scouts tour printing plant
In preparation for production of a guidebook for girls entering junior high school, Cadette Girl Scout Troop 31315 (Newark) of the Coyote Hills Service Unit toured TC Transcontinental Printing in Fremont on April 13 to learn how newspapers are converted from electronic files to printed editions. The guidebook is being creating and produced by the troop as a community project as a step toward earning the Girl Scout Silver Award, the highest award a Girl Scout Cadette can earn. The troop also plans to conduct a community workshop for girls about to enter junior high school.
Transcontinental Manager Rocky Dave led the scouts through the facility and explained the printing process. He spoke about the techniques and procedures used by the printing facility to assure timely production of a quality product. TC Transcontinental Printing customers include the San Francisco Chronicle and Tri-City Voice newspapers.
