Saranac Lake’s First Ever Resource Day

Saranac Lake’s Riverside Park will be packed with employers and job seekers Thursday from 2-5 p.m. for the first-ever resource day. “I need more employees. I have a few upcoming projects downtown that we need to complete by May 31st and I just need more people,” says Mike Martin, owner of Blackfly Woodworking & Metal Works. “That’s what we hear is one of the most common issues or challenges that our businesses and employers face is finding people to work with,” said Rachel Karp, of the Chamber of Commerce. of Saranac Lake. That’s why the Saranac Lake Chamber of Commerce is partnering with the Saranac Lake Central School District on the first-ever Resource Day. “I think a lot of times when they don’t have jobs, they’re not run by different people. So I think having a boss at work and teachers at school, they’ll see a different dynamic,” said Josh Dann, principal of Saranac Lake High School. Seventy businesses line Riverside Park, not just for students, but for anyone in the Saranac Lake District looking for work and resources. “We work to provide in-house services and programs for our students and their families to make our school a hub. Students can come to school and families and parents can be at work and all resources can come to them here,” said Erika Bezio, Community School Liaison. The Saranac Lake Chamber of Commerce and Saranac Lake Central School District hope the resource day will increase employment rates in the district — and eventually introduce students to trades they haven’t been introduced to during the pandemic. .
