Scarecrows invade Mint Hill!

For the third year, the Town of Mint Hill is sponsoring a scarecrow contest. Today is the day they were placed in front of town hall or businesses. Most got them up before the rain began, while some waited for an opening in the clouds.

Kids save a buck at MH Earth Echoes Children’s Musuem

Kids from Girl Scout Troop 3652 got to make Halloween masks recently at the Mint Hill Earth Echoes Children’s Museum. The girls meet at Philadelphia Presbyterian Church. Watch for the museum’s two new displays: Holidays Around the World and an exhibit on the Sister Cities network. If you haven’t been to the museum yet, it’s worth the trip. Jerry and Sue Helms’ collection of artifacts they have collected from many years of travel is truly astounding.

Chamber music comes to Mint Hill

Tickets are still available for the chamber music concert 4-6 pm Sunday at the home of Susan Griffith in Mint Hill. The concert is sponsored by Chamber Music at St. Peter’s. From the Web site:

These intimate private home concerts honor the origins of chamber music. Set in the private homes of generous individuals throughout Charlotte and the surrounding region, these concerts are the perfect opportunity to see every movement of the musicians as they play their instruments. After the performance, meet other classic music enthusiasts, while enjoying hors d’oeurves.

Not sure what chamber music sounds like? Here’s a trio doing Rachmaninov piano trio Elégiaque No.1 in g minor. The trio Sunday will perform Rachmaninov Elégiaque No. 2 in D minor.
