Event Report

We had two relatively new (less than 6 months) first time Y owners from Battle Creek and from Lansing (Both had been long time Bolt owners, and one had purchased the second Volt produced [in 2011]!).  There was also a former Bolt owner with a Rivian (from Grand Rapids).  A BMW i4 owner came from Dewitt. He had purchased his first Bolt in 2017.   From Barry County there were 2 Bolts, a 1 month old Cadillac Lyriq, an Audi e-tron, and 2 plug-in hybrids (Prius Prime and Ford Fusion).
Next time I need signage and more space. And the Expo was a kid-friendly event and kids looking for candy or give aways were leading their parents.
Thank you for providing the Barry County Earth Alliance with the opportunity to hold this event.
