MOM's Organic Market - Waldorf, MD

Waldorf, MD 20603
National Drive Electric Week Waldorf was hosted by MD Volt Inc. at MOMs Organic Market in Waldorf, MD. MOMs pulled out all the stops by having an electronics recycling event, kids activities (recycling challenge and electric car races) and organic food tastings. The highlight of the event was the presentation of a proclamation by Ken Robinson, Charles County Commissioner District 1. Ken is also owner of a Nissan LEAF and was instrumental in getting some of the first charging stations in Charles County. Sheehy Nissan Waldorf provided ride and drives of a Nissan LEAF, and participating Tesla owners gave ride and drives as well. Kia demoed a Soul EV, which will be available in Maryland this fall. Due to the proximity of Joint Base Andrews, we were lucky to have an impromptu jet flyover.
