Event Report

It was great to have our dedicated members support the efforts of promoting EVs. Tesla Canada joined us with a Model 3 and Y available for test drives. Test drives really helped gather attention and educate the public.  Great things also happened such as Tree Planting and community members supporting the event by staffing a booth. 
Thanks, everyone for participating.

Event Description


Come and test drive a Tesla Model 3 or a Model Y as Tesla advisors will be there to help you with questions.  Jeep and Chrysler will also be present with their PHEVs and possibly be available for drives. Participate in an Earth Day Event hosted by the Bryerswood Youth Camp Optimist Club, along with many of their supporters.  EV owners are invited to display their EVs and share their knowledge on EV ownership.  This a great opportunity for visitors to see many models of EVs at one location and ask all the questions one may have regarding EVs. COVID recommendations and precautions will be followed, depending on current conditions. 

Tree planting activities will take place on the campgrounds for anyone interested in planting seedlings. Bring your household batteries for proper recycling. Many displays and kid-friendly activities will be present including solar power, and more.  Bring a mug or refillable bottle for water and drinks.   
EV Owners, please arrive early if you like to display your EV before the 10:00 a.m. start. There is a short stretch of a dirt road in order to get to the event.  The youth camp can really use your support in making this event a success.
