Event Report

On April 22nd, the Orange Hat Brewery celebrated its third anniversary by holding a morning litter cleanup along Hardin Valley Road, then (among other things) welcoming the Knoxville Electric Vehicle Association (KEVA) and Drive Electric Tennessee for Drive Electric Earth Day.  KEVA rounded up owners of Chevy Bolts, Ford F-150 Lightnings, Kia EV6s, a Nissan LEAF, various Teslas, and a Zero SR/S motorcycle.  From 11am to 5pm, folks stopped by to talk about EVs and ask questions.  The Orange Hat is a wonderful family and pet friendly venue, and the weather was perfect.  Many thanks for the 16 volunteers who made this day happen.
