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.

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 .
