New member Pam Doane

 Please welcome our newest member, Pam Doane. She lives in Colorado Springs, CO and drives a 2018 Tesla Model 3.


From Pam:

Hi, Wilson,

You’re a fast worker.  My info looks good.  I enjoyed reading the newsletter and Mindy Brown’s e-saga, and watching the video of the road trip to NM.  I have a fun little story about buying my Tesla that I’ll have to share with you sometime.

I heard about CSEVC when my husband and I attended one of the community information meetings hosted by CO Springs Utilities a year or so ago?  A man attending the meeting told us about you. Also, when I was washing my car at my local do-it-yourself car wash another man told me about the club.  You have some great ambassadors out there.

Thanks for your quick response to my email.  I look forward to meeting you and the other members of the club.

Pam
