The event when really well. It was hosted by the Chatham Borough Environmental Commission, and the success should make it an annual event. The NJ DEP also contacted us before the event to inquire about it, and stopped by for a little. I didn't keep an accurate count of the number of people who stopped by other than those that registered. I also had to leave the event for 60 to 90 minutes to coach my daughter's soccer game. But there were at least 10 EVs there and at least 2x the number of interested people stopped by for information about EVs, many of who seemed persuaded that an EV should at least be among the cars they look at when buying a new one. And I'm likely under estimating the number of non-owners who showed up. Our event was helped by the fact that it was part of the annual Chatham Borough Sustainability Fair and the weekly Farmer's Market, which both took place in the same parking lot. Sorry the photo couldn't be better. It was taken at the very end of the event. I was so busy talking to non-owners that taking a picture in the middle of the event totally slipped my mind.
