Twenty years to the day of the 9/11 tragedy, our monthly meetup brought out respectful optimism—through attendees, EVs, and generous food donations to FeedMore WNY.
The site (sight?) was unrivaled. It took six months of planning but we finally landed a meetup right where Nikola Tesla’s multiphase power gets generated today: overlooking the Lower Niagara River at the New York Power Authority’s Niagara Power Project.
Technically we were set up outside its Power Vista, the free visitors center that deserves destination status itself for all TOCNYS members at one point or another.
Put together a few dozen Teslas with a handful of other EVs, all throughout the event, and you have probably the largest gathering of EVs ever in Niagara County!
Then couple that with owners from all across NY State—several with family members in tow—plus public citizens there for the show, and the combo was unbeatable.
Wait, the weather was unbeatable. Okay, it was all unbeatable. We’ll let a few pictures speak for themselves.
Also stay tuned for future Niagara Frontier meetups. Prior to our usual Second Saturday of the Month meetup in October, be sure to drop in at the Buffalo National Drive Electric Week EV Rodeo downtown on September 25.
Special thanks to all NYPA staff, especially Manager of Community Affairs, Teresa Martinez, and Supervisor of Photographic Operations, Paul Pasquarello. Paul kindly contributed to our photo album which has plenty more to view. Please post any of your own additional event pics there!
If you’re one of the many people who need a break from stress that’s starting to weigh you down, you’re not alone. According to the American Institute of Stress, 80% of U.S. workers suffer from work-related stress. So don’t let the decision to take a vacation if money is tight add even more anxiety. When you want to take a vacation without venturing far, you have to get creative. This doesn’t mean you have to give up fun family outings, enjoyable dinners, or seeing new sights, and you don’t have to stray too far away to make it happen.
