CNG HONDA GIVEN TO TOWN!
On 12/4 at 11AM Kansas Lt. Governor Mark Parkinson and his wife, Stacy, joined several GreenTown board members and other citizens and leaders to witness the handover of the keys to a beautiful compressed natural gas fueled Honda Civic to GreenTown and the City. Along with the car came a fueling station provided by Kansas Gas Co. and installation by Fahnestock Plumbing of Wichita. The gift is a significant one valued at around $35,000. Many thanks to all the donors, especially the folks at Scholfield Honda: General Manager /Owner Roger Schofield and Alternative Fuels Manager, Lee Lindquist. They got the package put together and even delivered the car themselves. Lee is an extraordinary fount of information and spent a lot of time sharing his wisdom and passion for the CNG Honda, making everything about it easy to understand as well as explaining its significance as an alternative fuels vehicle. The folks filming from Eco-Town/Discovery caught a lot of Lee’s “class” on film. Great job, Lee and Roger, for making this dream come true. Look for the car whipping around town in service to the city, and used for tours with visitors and guests of GreenTown and the City. And if you are interested in a natural gas-powered car for yourself, check this car out in Greensburg or buy it in Wichita.
Greensburg thanks you Roger, Lee, (Scholfield Honda), Ron (Kansas Gas), and Scott and Casey (Fahnestock Electric, Plumbing and HVAC).
