Event Report

No volunteer hours were used because salaried employees were the workers. Our event had our mayor and two city council members attend. One location television news station attended, and the two local newspapers came. We installed a new charger for the event, and had people spin a wheel to win prizes from Nissan, Virginia International Raceway, and from Danville Utilities. Everyone spoke highly of the event.
