Event Report

A really good first effort for our area. Attendance was greater than anticipated. mainly through social media and one radio interview conducted earlier the same day. One city councillor (who also is an EV owner) participated. Our local group also made good connections with other regional EV groups and look forward to building a bigger presence for next year!
