MINT HILL, NC – On Tuesday, December 13, the Mint Hill Chamber of Commerce held its last monthly luncheon of the year at Olde Sycamore Golf Plantation.
The Chamber of Commerce welcomed three new members at the December luncheon. Drain My Lawn is a company that specializes in professional exterior drainage design and installation who seeks to proclaim Christ through their work and their word. At Neuroconnection Counseling, PLLC, Myriam Rabaste specializes in trauma care, using an integrative approach to help clients tap into their brains’ innate capacity for healing. Platinum Institute of Real Estate offers both virtual and in person classes for real estate education, targeting realtors needing CE credit.
In attendance from Town Hall were Mayor Pro Tem and Chamber Liaison Dale Dalton and Commissioner Tony Long. Dalton thanked everyone who contributed to Mint Hill’s packed day of holiday festivities on December 3. “The Jingle All the Way 5k, the Senior Citizens Christmas Party, the parade, the Tree Lighting – I don’t think we could have put another thing in that day!” said Dalton.
Dalton also recapped important developments at Mint Hill’s police and fire departments over the past year, highlighting both departments’ commitment to going above and beyond to stay current in their practices. In addition to 1000 hours of mandated in-service training, the Mint Hill Police department completed an additional 4000 hours of training, doubtlessly contributing to Mint Hill once again ranking in the top 20 safest towns to live in NC. Mint Hill’s Fire Department’s 34 firefighters and supervisors responded to about 5000 calls this past year. Like the Police Department, they surpassed training expectations, completing 5391.7 hours of training, an average of 200 hours per firefighter – well above the required 36 hours a year of training.
Selected as the Business of the Month in December was Massage Sanctuary. “Lisa not only strives to exceed expectations in her business but she strives to make the Chamber a thriving organization,” said Executive Director Paige McKinney of owner Lisa Lane. “When Lisa is considering how to grow her exposure in the Mint Hill community, she is always thinking of how to grow relationships with fellow members. She believes in giving back to our local chamber members by investing in their missions and additionally in the Chamber’s mission. She takes a positive approach in our Chamber and with our members by encouraging them to get connected and stay connected. She continuously serves on many of our committees and is always willing to help sponsor Chamber events.”
December’s speaker was Mint Hill’s Town Engineer and Director of Public Works Steve Frey, who gave an informative review of 2022 as well as a glimpse ahead into 2023. Frey focused on three areas: town growth, town events and other useful info. Make sure to grab a copy of next week’s Mint Hill Times to read all about it!
