Event Report

This event took place at the Springfield museums. The event was adjacent to their annual "history in motion" event which was a display of old vehicles. We talked to over 30 adults and children about the EVs. WE did not get the Tesla as promised but the two vehicles on display were an accomplishment for a location in remote western Massachusetts. This event was planned without the knowledge of an event held in another western mass town held by a local utility. They had a slightly better number of cars - Next year we will look to combine events.
