The third meeting of the EV1 club was again hosted in Diamond
Bar where Saturn, the AQMD and the California sun (solar panels are
also providing shade in the photo at left) worked together
to provide recharges to all electric vehicles in attendance,
including a few non-EV1's.
The featured speaker was Joe Kennedy (V.P. from Saturn) who
filled the club members in on Saturn's marketing effort. Reps
from Edison EV also updated everyone on the status of the charger

of the first charger to be installed at their market (in Santa
Friends & guests (see Janet, Dusty, and Douglas at right) were
invited to see what all the EV1 commotion was about. Saturn
brought along the EV1 road show, hosted a barbecue, and invited
