I think we should try to cover as many events on April 21st as we can, so
we can get more people know about OEVA.
The City of Beaverton, OR is holding a Neighborhood Summit on Saturday,
April 21st from 9 a.m. to Noon at City Hall and the topic
is "Living Greener: Practical Solutions for You and How Your City and
Regional Partners Can Help!" We will be having several presentations
and are inviting local businesses and organizations to provide
displays for attendees to take a look at. With that said, we would
like to have the Oregon Electric Vehicles Association provide a booth
for the event or bring along a few cars to showcase outside of City Hall.
The presentations are all booked, but your participation with a booth
and/or a few electric cars to display outside would be great.
If this sounds like something that you might be interested in please give
me a call at (503) 526-2543 or send me an email. Thanks
for your time and consideration.

This was announced again last meeting.
A friend just returned from Los Angeles and heard Ed Begley speak with
passion about EVs, and he also showed off his sizable new EV. An AMAZING
array of alternative vehicles were present. Shall we re-create the event
- in April?
A major Earth Day 2007 event is Scheduled for a mid April Saturday,
in Woodlawn Park - in Northeast Portland. Anywhere from 1,000 to 5,000
attendees are expected, depending on weather and level of community
involvement in promotion. An excellent children's area is always part of
An Alternative Transportation Fair exhibition opportunity exists,
& also I believe that a Coordinator (or Co-Coordinators)
for the Alternative Transportation Fair are needed to organize
and help promote something really special.
Does anyone active with OEVA have interest in making this happen?
Here is an overview:
Better Transportation Fair Goals: create better transportation fair,
communicate with exhibitors, work with design and logistics people/ Job
Description: communicate with other coordinators, outreach to
participants, work with publicity. Roles: one coordinator Time-line:
January: contact participants. February: work with design committee.
April: coordinate at the event. Other committees: design, logistics,
publicity. Needs/Resources: Contact Information.

Maybe a screening of WKTEC (with a Q & A session) can also happen as
part of the Earth Day weekend, or pass out tickets for a subsequent date
? ( For Earth Day we hope to have use of Woodlawn Elem. School, Woodlawn
Park Methodist Church & Community Resource Center, and the Village
Ballroom, on NE Dekum much of the weekend, as well as the Park and
neighboring streets) Partnership in fund-raising ideas/grants is
