Rocket Lab meetup at Urban Winery

On February 19, 2023, Club members gathered at Urban Winery in Silver Spring and were treated with a tour of their neighbor, Rocket Lab’s Separation Systems facility. Rocket Lab was founded in New Zealand and headquartered in Long Beach, California with manufacturing and launch operations in Maryland and Virginia. Mike Whelan, VP of Separation Systems (and Tesla owner!) provided attendees with some company history and showed off the impressive design and manufacturing facility tucked away in suburban Montgomery County, MD.

2022 Frunk or Treat Clarksville

The Tesla Owners Club of Maryland was once again a sponsor of the Clarksville Commons event, bringing lots of frunks and lots of treats to give out to hordes of kids (and sometimes their parents). The weather was perfect, and everyone had a blast.

People donated about 100 items to the Howard County Food Bank too.
