Event ReportWith nice weather for a change, we had a better than last year turn out. This year saw 14 different makes/models show up to illustrate the wide range of EVs available with over 25 vehicles in attendance. The FVEAA even gained a few new members as well. Lots of story-telling took place with EV grins breaking out all over the parking lot. Many ride-and-drives kept the enthusiasm going for investing in the EV lifestyle.
