Event Report

We didn't have any specific speakers.  The event was done in partnership with EVADC, in that we promoted it on the EVADC calendar at and used the opportunity to distribute our EV Info sheet.  We had a Model Y, Chevy Bolt and F-150 Lightning, so three price levels and two vehicle types.  There are not many Lightnings around yet, so that was a big draw.

I had my eye on the Olney Farmers Market for a while, since I wanted to do a smaller scale, more intimate event.  I "cold emailed" the market, and sent some photos of previous events at other places, so they would know what it looked like.  I was careful to say the vehicles would be static, not for sale, and done for educational purposes, so that the farmers market wouldn't be scared off.  They were obliging, and I gave them the choice of the first or second NDEW Sunday.  They picked our spot and offered us one of their tables, and since it was a one-time event, gave us the space for free.

I can see doing the same thing for Earth Day, since this event was successful.
