The Chamber of Commerce welcomed several first-time guests and new members at the November luncheon. First-time guests included Rocky River High School’s new head football coach as well as new additions to the team at Terry Aaeseby’s office and Wisdom Senior Care. New members included WJP Associates, Drain My Lawn, Platinum Institute of Real Estate, AGT Wellness, Patterson Contracting Services, and Cox Landscaping.
Mayor Pro-Tem and Chamber Liaison Dale Dalton gave a brief update regarding the development of a large complex off Idlewild Road. Although the project promises to impact Mint Hill heavily, it actually falls within the Town of Matthews. Commissioner Dalton encouraged those with an opinion on the proposed development to attend next month’s meeting in the town of Matthews to make their voices heard.
The Chamber’s November Business of the Month is 1st Choice Properties. Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Paige McKinney lauded 1st Choice Properties Owner Anna Granger’s service on multiple Chamber committees, sponsorship of Chamber events, and encouragement of other members to get and stay connected. “When Anna is considering how to grow her exposure in the Mint Hill community, she is always thinking of how to grow relationships with fellow members,” said McKinney. “She never hesitates to recommend chamber members to her clients, customers and team of agents.”
November’s Spotlight Member is Executive Board Vice President and Owner of Leisure Travel Experts Phil Angelo. Angelo and his wife Barbara have always loved to travel, and as people began to ask them for travel advice more frequently, they asked themselves: why not start a travel agency? When they’re not setting off for new destinations (Phil has sailed 104 cruises and 82 countries – and counting!), Phil and Barabara enjoy volunteering at St. Luke’s Church.
November’s speaker was Greg Bartholomy from GB Electrical Services. Greg and his wife Nicki take pride in providing 24-hour service with prompt response times, straightforward pricing and excellent customer service. Greg also loves teaching and coaching and works hard to develop his staff, working with young adults interested in entering the field and training staff from the back of the warehouse to be responsible for their own truck and team.
