Event Report

Present at our event was the first driver of a LEAF delivered in Maine and 2nd yr city captain yours truly Marc Lausier (I'm presently driving my second LEAF), Barry Woods city captain and director at Plug In American as well as the organization's former president Chad Schwitters. There were a couple of politicians and the most important people of all...those who don't yet own an electric vehicle. My main focus and that of this EVent was to positively influence them with the hope an EV will soon become part of their lives! And the true VIP's of National Drive Electric Week event were the children to whom I gave free NDEW 2014 embroidered caps with the promise they will buy an electric car when old enough...I suspect many will follow through on that promise.
