    to all D$W members and friends,

    Spring 2019 may be a few days away but 2019 has already made quite an impact on our home, Earth. Locally, winter went out like a lion but of more significance globally, two devastating reports came out detailing the advancing of environmental decline much quicker than we had thought. These reports give a new urgency to what Drive $mart Wisconsin has been trying to achieve for over 13 years: fuel efficient driving and sustainable green transportation options. Both can help mitigate the effects of these reports and teach us how to immediately save money and become safer drivers.

    The US Climate Assessment

    The UN IPCC Report

    With these reports in mind, our first D$W Meet of 2019 will be held on Saturday April 20th at the Greenfield Public Library from 10:30 to 1 pm. This will be our 54th D$W Meet since 2006 and will also be on official National Electric Earth Day event as well. We’ll be sharing our $mart driving experience/tools with our new members but also be sharing our expertise and experiences with EV/PHEV and offering rides/drives for those that may register through NEED site. We’ll also be discussing new rides coming down the road as well as new battery technology as well.

    As a result of two D$W Outreach events, the Milwaukee Auto Show and Racine Ecofest, we’ve invited 29 new D$W members to this Meet who are excited to learn more about Driving $mart techniques and EV/PHEV’s. In addition, we have had several family members of MPS students who are currently taking our D$W “Tools for a Lifetime” training in partnership with the MPS Drive Program, who expressed interest in joining D$W. So, we’ll need as many D$W veterans to attend so they help us get our new members informed about D$W and how they can save money and help our Earth as well.

    And lastly, the Library has asked us to limit out D$W Meets to no more than 2 hours, so going forward we’ll still meet up in the parking lot around 9-9:30 but our Meet will not start until 10:30 and must end by 1pm. We’ll still do a potluck but the Meet may be a “working” one…eating while talking.

    In closing, Marie, Justin and I want to thank each of you that have hung with us over these 13 years, helped spread the mission of D$W to others and have supported D$W with your attendance, passion, expertise and experience. We hope to see you on the 20th and remember to bring friends, relatives, neighbors and co-workers for some Fuel for Thought.
