Event Report

East Hampton's Energy Task Force (EHETF) independently planned an Electric Car Show for their town. Our local EAA chapter learned of this and invited them to register their event as an NDEW event for a larger awareness and attendance.

The EHETF did a great job arranging music, kids activities, and grill food from a local restaurant. They invited selected vendors and local clubs to participate as well. Several local dealers were present with plug-ins, too.

It was a beautiful day next to a beautiful lake and a beautiful EVent!
