Event Report

Thank you to all those who participated. This was our 7th year at this location and was listed as a reunion event. The turn out was nice since it was not really promoted and the weather was questionable. Electric Vehicles are getting easier to find for display purposes but, It is the fine owners willing to show their cars and share the experiences only an EV owner can provide that makes NDEW events great. We had a diverse group that were all remarkable in their own way however, one attendee really helped make it a memorable experience for everybody. He is truly one of the best EV ambassadors that I have ever met. His knowledge, generosity and commitment to the promotion of electric vehicles made this small reunion event one of the best events we ever had. I think the other attendees were impressed as well. We hold other larger events across the state and hope to see all the attendees again.
