By Andrew Stark

The Mint Hill Board of Commissioners will hold its annual retreat on March 6-8 at The Hut in Pineville, giving commissioners and the board a chance to casually discuss new issues and get caught up on where the town stands on several key recent developments

Bain received a gracious welcome last Thursday at Philadelphia Presbyterian Church, where some of his ancestors are buried. Mayor Ted Biggers presented him with several mementos from the town, including several pins and an ornament of the town hall. “We were quite excited when we heard we had a namesake from the Bain family coming,” said Biggers. ““This is about…meeting the community and connecting so when people come here they don’t have to have the last name Bain to feel welcome.”  […]
