The Town of Mint Hill offers friends and relatives the opportunity to honor a loved one with either a new park bench or tree. Benches will feature an inscription of the donor’s choice and trees will have a bronze plaque inscribed with the donor’s choice of words. The honoree (or honorees, as space permits on the bench or tree plaque) may be living or deceased and must have at one time in their life been a resident of Mint Hill. Businesses, groups, or organizations are not permitted to be the honoree.
