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.

Pasco, WA, 99301
PriusBlue attended the Franklin PUD's Alternative Energy Expo in Pasco, WA and attempted to help many bus loads of grade school students learn what a Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle is and why their parents should get one. Many of them thought it was "cool" and many others offered to buy it for $5, which was mighty tempting ;)
After the show Ryan and Blue took a side trip to check out the PUD's nine canyon road wind farm with it's many 60 meter (200 foot) 1330 kW turbines, each produces enough electric power for about 30,000 PHEV miles each day (1330 kW * 24 hours * 0.32 annual yield * 3 miles per kWh).
