Our event was coordinated with the Earth Day celebration of Sierra College (Nevada County Campus) from 10-2 on Thurs., April 25th. We saw a lot of students who were interested in a future with cleaner energy, as well as a number of retirees who loved the idea of low- maintenance vehicles. If the event had been on the weekend instead of on a Thursday, I'm sure we would have had twice as many people.
