Event Report

There were a number of people who showed up because they had heard about the event through social media / newspaper / online, and many of the local Farmer's Market Patrons stopped in as well. I talked to many retired older people who were there for the Market, but very interested. There were also a lot of families with young children stopping by.
Some local politicians / community volunteers stopped in. I remember Dorothy Rasmussen was there from the town council, and a local township administrator. Farmer's Market Volunteers were very helpful.
I contacted all local dealerships including 4 separate Nissan Dealerships and only 1 brought a car for test drives - which left after a single test drive. The dealerships were generally poor at returning calls/emails, and waited weeks before I could even get them to say no. The BMW dealers (I contacted Open Road and Springfield), Nissan dealers, and GM were out of stock. The Farmer's Market organizer only allowed 2 cars inside the market.
