Electric cars and coffee Hy-Vee Springfield Illinois Saturday September 20 2014 National Drive Electric Week

I’m fully aware that this is last minute notice. Several weeks ago I made a few private inquiries – to try and get a gathering of electric cars at Hy-Vee charging stations in Springfield Illinois.

When I made an inquiry on Twitter – Hy-Vee corporate just replied with Twitter account for local store. Unfortunately whoever manages that account has not seen value in replying back to me.

I was wanting to get them interested in promoting a National Drive Electric Week event at their electric car charging stations. Springfield Illinois as far as I am aware has never held such a gathering – even though it is the State Capital.

Normal Illinois just held their National Drive Electric Week event in Uptown on September 11th – it was very well attended – offered free food – bike helmets, other freebies and promoted local businesses. Several car dealerships attended – educating visitors on electric car ownership and trying to sell them. I guess Springfield and Hy-Vee don’t see value in following this example.

My original intention was to get local electric car ( EV ) owners together to show appreciate for the local Hy-Vee charging stations. Also thought it would be worthwhile to get local owners together – to show how many there really are and to share ownership stories etc.

With International Route 66 Mother Road Festival just around corner – it would be nice to see more electric cars represented at this event.

St. Louis Science Center will host its 1st Annual Electric Vehicle Car Show this weekend for National Drive Electric Week on September 21 2014. Location is parking lot of the James S. McDonnell Planetarium in Forest Park from 11AM to 3PM.
