Event Report

The event was closed early for security purposes due to a visit from the President of Poland. 

The Northeast Nissan Rep. Jason and Crowley Nissan Rep. Dana conducted hands-on demonstration and test drives to all interested attendees. 

The Tesla Owners Club of CT. was a big hit with everybody. The Hyundai Kona EV was also very popular. 

Professor Charles E. Button was in attendance and his help organizing the events every year for the past 8 events is commendable. 

I offer my sincere apologies to anybody that missed our event due to the early closing and a heartfelt thank you to all of the vehicle owners and attendees.

Please keep our CCSU location in mind for the 2020 NDEW as we will celebrate our 9th consecutive year.
