Event Report

Kingman's Mayor Ken Watkins had been confirmed as a speaker, but other last minute duties prevented him from attending.

There were two EVs on display which drew the most attention: a Ford F150 Lighting Pick-up Truck and a new Hyundai Ioniq 5 EV.

Special thanks to the President of the Historic Route 66 EVA chapter, Jessica May, and her husband, Mike May (,   volunteered at the last minute to staff the welcome/registration table and assist with event setup and take-down when the original volunteer's boss assigned him to work on the day which the boss had previously OK'd the volunteer's participation in the Kingman event.
