Braidwood's Community Open House July 25 drew 160 people to the station's Training Building, smashing the site's previous attendance record for the event. Guests enjoyed informational booths, hands-on exhibits and many interactive attractions for children. 

Dozens of Generation Nation members staffed booths, interacted with the community, and most importantly, promoted nuclear during the event.

"It was a great opportunity to advocate for nuclear power to the public," said Braidwood Generation Nation member Tim Gardner, who talked about safety and gave away hardhats to kids at his booth.

The most popular booth was the Virtual Reality Digital Plant Viewer exhibit and the Safety Town setup.

Guests of note were Braidwood Mayor Jim Vehrs, the Braidwood Police Chief and Braidwood Chamber of Commerce Director, Grundy County Administrator and EMA Director and a vice president from Will County's Economic Development Council . Also in attendance were representatives from Braidwood Lions Club and Ronald McDonald House Charities; taking part in check presentations from Site Vice President Marri Marchionda-Palmer.​
