Event Report

A Lincoln City Council member was in attendance. Hy-Vee Supermarket provided the venue and featured a Tesla inside the store starting a week before the event. Besides the Nebraska Sierra Club there were two other co-sponsors - Nebraska Wildlife Federation and Nebraskans for Solar. A Tesla had a choreographed routine with flashing lights, doors opening and closing and music. The event this year more than quadrupled the number of EVs and attendance over previous years. We had overhead photos by drone.
