A little about WVEAA
The West Virginia Electric Auto Association is a small group of electric car enthusiasts. The association is organized as a chapter of the national Electric Auto Association. At a recent meeting, annual dues of $15 were established to help defer materials and signage costs of exhibits at events.
EVs and Coffee! Two locations, two times:
