Hello everyone!

One quick & important amendment to John's email:
If you are interested in participating, please email me at emmaline at oregoncub.org<mailto:emmaline at oregoncub.org> and I will add you to the list of drivers.  The folks organizing St. John's Parade would prefer to have all of us registered as ONE group versus a bunch of individual drivers.

Thanks, everyone, and we look forward to seeing many of you on May 12th!

Greetings EV enthusiasts,

Emmaline, from the Citizens Utility Board, just sent this note about another fun event coming up on May 12th. I encourage you all to attend the parade and if possible, join in with your EV. This would be a great way for some of our members to do a ride-along and show our group's support of EVs. I will be there and I have room for up to 3 folks for a ride-along in the parade.

You'll notice that in the note below they are asking for us to "register" by the 1st of May, so please go ahead and sign up now.

We'll talk more about the event at the upcoming May monthly OEVA meeting.

Thank you,

John P. Christian

Hi John,

I hope you had a lovely Earth Day weekend!

Have you heard of the St. John's Parade?  It's an enormous parade held each May (this year it is on the 12th) that circles around North Portland and draws upwards of a thousand people from all over the city.  Applications for being in the parade are due May 1st and it is completely free to be in it.

I am planning to get a group of electric vehicle owners together to march in the parade-but I wanted to check in first with you to make sure I'm not "doubling-up" if you and OEVA are already making plans to participate.  If you aren't, I will submit an application to participate and note that a good number of the vehicles will be (hopefully, if people are able!) from OEVA and the rest from my other contacts.  I'm envisioning a group of EVs driving together (conversions and mass-produced) with people walking along with them, holding banners from OEVA, CUB, and maybe other groups that are involved in the outreach effort (EV Roadmap?  Drive Oregon?)

I see this event as an opportunity to bring together many of the individuals working on getting the word out about EVs-collaboration on this kind of publicity and outreach is what makes it the most powerful and thus effective!

Please let me know as soon as you can if OEVA will be participating and we'll go from there.

Thanks, John!
