Event Description


Venue will be the same as last year.  We will all assemble in the Sunnyside Beach parking lot starting at Noon for a group vehicle and people picture at 12:15 PM.   A few rides will be offered.  From 12:30 to 12:45 PM, we will all walk (150 yards) to the Sunnyside Beach Pavilion for a pot luck picnic.  We will be welcomed by Pierce County Councilman Doug Richardson, and Town Councilman Nancy Henderson.  We will have some food, and then a series of 3 minute speeches on our Electric Vehicle experiences.  We should all be done by 2 PM.   This is a pot luck, so bring some food and/or beverages.   I will bring all the necessary condiments, napkins, etc.  Any questions, please feel free to call or text me at 253-439-9797 or email at Dick (at) DickMuri (dot) com
