Mint Hill Madness set for Memorial Day Weekend

By Michele Dotson : Staff Writer- dotson.michele@minthilltimes.com

Plans for this year’s Mint Hill Madness are well underway and the four-man Board of Directors is looking for ways to make it bigger and better than ever. Board members Dalton Taylor, Tony Long, Julian Venable, and Scott Harris have been working quietly behind the scenes for the past few months.

“Right now we’re putting finishing touches on several key components for planning,” says Dalton Taylor. “Our 501 (c)(3) status is very, very close to being finalized, our website is being built, and applications are being updated.”

Dalton says once these pieces are done and in place, they can line up vendors, entertainment, and solicit volunteer organizations for assistance.

“We want to run this so that the volunteer organizations that help can generate money for their non-profit,” says Taylor.

Fundraiser provides support for military families

On Saturday, October 19, Military Family Lifestyle Charitable Foundation (MFLCF) held its 4th Annual Honor the Warriors Bike Ride at the newly renamed Mint Hill Veterans Memorial Park on Hwy. 218. The organization works specifically with the family members of killed in action paratroopers or Special Forces.

MFLCF is in partnership with Hearts & Hammers, Purple Heart Homes, Charlotte Bridge Homes, The Patriot Charities, local businesses and hundreds of volunteers to build five homes in five years for Service Disabled Veterans who are moving to the Charlotte area.

According to Cantwell, it is estimated that over 7,000 veterans will be moving to the Charlotte area in the next couple of years.

“We just finished building the first house,” says Richard D. Cantwell, Chairman of MFLCF and former Commander for a 625-man combat engineer battalion in South Korea.

“We have four home sites in one location, and the fifth lot was a bit small for a house, so Lowe’s has donated a playground,” he says. “The last house will be built near the others in the Denver, NC area.”

Despite the rain, turnout was great and other organizations were visible and supportive.

Former Charlotte resident Joseph Henao, who is now a military science instructor at the Citadel, participated with The Warrior Ride, a non-profit organization founded in Oak Island, North Carolina who uses cycling as a rehabilitative and morale building activity for wounded soldiers.

Three separate rides left the park on staggered times. […]
