Event Report

We had 4 vehicles, a Chevrolet Bolt EV, a Honda Clarity from a local dealership, a Tesla Model 3, and a Nissan Leaf on display. We had 3 members from a local EV club attend and help provide information about EVs to interested people. We tagged this EV showcase onto an existing open house at our district office in hopes to draw folks over to look at it.
