We did the Barbeque!

The forecast was for on and off thunderstorms, but we had sunshine and 86 degrees with light breezes through the NMC campus. A perfect day for the annual fundraiser known as the NMC Barbeque. Wayne & I were there to answer questions about the Automotive Service Technology program. We also answered a lot of questions about the hybrid trainer vehicle. What surprised me somewhat was how much some of the attendees already knew about hybrid electric vehicles! Great food and great company on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. Bliss.

Let's all do the Barbeque!

  The annual NMC Barbeque will be held on Sunday, May 22nd this year. It's an old fashioned picnic and fundraiser that has been a Traverse City tradition for many years. The public is invited to come and visit the campus while dining on barbeque and other goodies donated by Oleson's Food Stores and prepared by countless volunteers. The Automotive Service Technology Department will be there to display the Hybrid Trainer and answer questions about alternative energy vehicles. If you are a follower of this blog and are in the area, please stop in to say Hello and see our project up close.
  Our new trailer just had a jazzy checkerboard floor installed, and although the cabinets will not be installed in time for the barbeque we will be loading the trainer up and headed over there early on the 22nd. For more information about the barbeque, visit the NMC website here.
