Downtown Lindsay Environmental Fair set for August 12th

KAWARTHA LAKES: Members of the Kawartha Electric Vehicle Society will be lining Kent Street, in front of the Lindsay Library, with Electric Vehicles (EVs) as part of an Environmental Fair on Saturday, August 12th.

More than a dozen club members, will be on hand with their cars, to discuss their driving experiences. Plug 'n Drive Electric Vehicle Discovery Centre will join them with three EVs available to sign out for test drives, during the event, which runs from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. A similar 'EVs on Kent' event last year attracted about 200 people, who were curious to learn more about driving electric vehicles.

This year's event has been expanded to include a variety of other environmental displays and activities. From 10 a.m. until noon, the library will be offering displays as well as story time and crafts for the kids. The Kawartha Art Gallery will also take part, with Laura Butler, the artist from their current exhibit, overseeing the creation of a street chalk mural, which is open to interested participants.

Behind town hall, the Lindsay and District Chamber of Commerce will be launching its Lindsay Bike Share program. Visitors can also check out the new bike racks and bike repair stations in Queen's Square.

This event is co-sponsored by the Kawartha chapter of the Electric Vehicle Society and the Kawartha Lakes Environmental Advisory Committee (KLEAC). Financial support has been provided by the Lindsay Downtown Business Improvement Association (BIA).
