Event Report

Our EVent was a historic first for Mclennan County and the City of Waco. Hundreds of people walked by, noticing our presence, but only a few were curious enough to approach and interact.
I consider this first-ever EVent to be a success, in spite of the small numbers. Our chapter is only seven months old, and this was our first opportunity to interact with the public this year due to COVID restrictions. This was a good start to an exciting future.

A huge "Thank you" to our EV owners- it was great to finally meet you in person.
Also, thank you to our participating test-drive dealership(s): AutoNation Chevrolet of Waco

Special thanks to the McLennan County Commissioner's Court and Judge Scott Felton; and the Waco City Council and Mayor Kyle Deaver for issuing Proclamations for National Drive Electric Week.
