Nice dedication ceremony Monday night for the Front Royal, VA CHAdeMO/SAE Combo (CCS) Fast Charger.

Front Royal Town Council (including Mayor Timothy Darr), Virginia Clean Cities Executive Director Alleyn Harned & Deputy Director Matt Wade, representatives of Tri-State Nissan (with a black 2015 Leaf S), and a reporter from WHAG-TV in Hagerstown, MD were among those in attendance. A new Tesla Model S owner from Northern VA also made the trip out and had his car on display.

Council Members in attendance seemed genuinely excited about the prospect of drawing EV owners off Interstates 81 & 66 / Routes 340 & 522 and into town to enjoy great dining and shopping opportunities which are all an easy walk from the new charging station.
