If there are more than one event on a given day, then make the == Header == at the top of the page include a short description of both events so that they will both appear in the summary for that day. Then create two or more === Sub Headers === (Notice the 3 = signs instead of 2) for each separate event on that day.
== First EVent & Another EVent Also ==
=== First EVent ===
First Event details and description text goes here.
===Another EVent Also===
Details for the another event also go right here.
You can also add ==== Sub Sub Headers ==== for an event if there is a lot of information for that event, perhaps someone might want to add a ==== Photos ==== section.
The simplest way to add photos is to upload them to the site (you may need to ask for an account to do this). Take a look at the Photos page for a list of EVents that had photos added.
Then just list them in a gallery block.

Additional [[Category:]] tags can be added to the top of the page, we do not use many categories at the moment, but they help to organize pages and help visitors find related pages. For example there might be a Tesla Category and any event with a Tesla at it could have the Tesla category.

Rich Feldman is the Washington State Coordinator for the Apollo Alliance and other Washington State's PHEV advocates have organized two events at the State Capitol.
In coordination with the event, Washington's Department of Ecology has posted Frequently Asked Questions on Electrification of Transportation that are a good survey of the main issues around PHEVs, EVs and heavy-duty vehicles. Worth checking out at here.
The FAQ is based on the 24-page "Electrify Transportation Briefing Book" from the Electrify Transportation in Washington Group, written by Rich Feldman, Coordinator for the Apollo Alliance of Washington, and Executive Director of the Worker CenterKing County Labor Council, AFL-CIO, and Patrick Mazza, Research Director for Climate Solutions.
The first of two Washington State legislative work sessions on how we Electrify Transportation happens this Wednesday Feb 7 with a focus on plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs).
The second session is Feb 9 at 1:30 and focuses on port electrification, truckstop electrification and truck idling reduction.
Both sessions explore the role of electricity as part of a set of strategies that includes transit, biofuels, vehicle efficiency and transportation efficiency to reduce petroleum use and GHG emissions.
