Event Report

A surprise participant drove all the way from Monroe, Wisconsin in his all-electric Kia Niro.  Altogether, we were treated to 12 different models of plug-in vehicles, including a 2-door Mini Cooper S hardtop.  A rare sunny day made for a very pleasant afternoon amid the woods and trails of the Nature Center.
