MINT HILL, NC – On Tuesday, October 18, the Mint Hill Chamber of Commerce held its Monthly Member Luncheon at Olde Sycamore Golf Plantation.
Mayor Pro-Tem and Liaison to the Chamber of Commerce Dale Dalton was pleased to announce that the Land Use Plan the Town has been working on for two years now was approved at the Board meeting on Thursday, October 13. Dalton congratulated the Mint Hill Historical Society on a successful Autumn Jubilee and the Chamber of Commerce on a fruitful Cornhole Tournament.
The biggest thing coming up for the Town of Mint Hill is Mint Hill Madness, which will kick off at 4:00 pm on Thursday, October 20, with “All You Can Ride” night sponsored by Mint Hill Orthodontics and close at 9:30 pm on Saturday, October 22, with a Fireworks Extravaganza. You’ll also want to mark your calendars for December 3, which promises to be a packed day for the Town of Mint Hill with the Mint Hill Police Department’s Jingle All The Way 5k, the Chamber’s Senior Citizens Breakfast, and the Town’s annual Christmas Parade and Tree Lighting. Also present at the luncheon were Commissioners Tony Long and Twanna Henderson.
Officer Cassie Scott from the Mint Hill Police Department’s Community Focus Response Unit shared information with those present. “Our goal is to bridge the gap between community members and law enforcement,” said Scott, “so we’re trying to be more visible in the community at events, schools – wherever we can be present – so the public can have a good relationship with law enforcement.” On October 29, MHPD will hold a “Cops on Top” fundraiser at Chick-fil-A Mint Hill to raise funds for the Special Olympics.
The Chamber of Commerce welcomed three new members at the October Luncheon: Potteria, Tina’s Southern Chick Catering, and Wisdom Senior Care, a home care service that allows seniors to “age in place” through companionship, home management, personal care and transportation services. The Raleigh-based company is new to the greater Charlotte area. “We’re excited to keep our seniors happy and aging gracefully in their homes,” said Owner Janessa France.
The Chamber’s October Business of the Month is Primis Mortgage, represented in the Chamber by Madi McKinney. A member of the Chamber’s ambassador team as well as several other committees, Madi volunteers time and donates resources to make sure Mint Hill’s Chamber is growing and thriving. She loves to meet with fellow members to brainstorm ideas to collaborate and connect with their businesses. Furthermore, Madi has a desire to make sure the next generation of business leaders is engaging in Mint Hill, and she is part of a team that plans to launch a Young Professional Networking Group at the Chamber.
This month’s Member Spotlight is Taylor Grimes from ServPro. Taylor joined the Chamber because she wanted a chance to get involved in the Mint Hill community and to take part in positively impacting it. Taylor wanted to focus on sharing more about ServPro of East Mecklenburg/Matthews and the restoration services they offer to help others in a time of need.
October’s speaker was Elizabeth Currie, Regional Mammography Manager for the Greater Charlotte market at Novant Health. As we prepare to close out Breast Cancer Awareness month, Currie and her colleagues helped those present understand the signs of breast cancer as well as the importance of 3D mammograms for detecting cancer at an early stage.
The Chamber is currently accepting nominations for the Tina Ross Business Leadership Award as well as submissions for the Best of Mint Hill Photo Contest. The 4th Annual Pop Up Christmas Shop is scheduled for Saturday, December 10, around the Town Hall Tree – 26 of the 35 spaces available have already been claimed!
The next Monthly Member Luncheon will take place on Tuesday, November 15, at Olde Sycamore, and will feature speaker Greg Bartholomy from GB Electrical. For more information on joining the Chamber of Commerce, visit https://www.minthillchamberofcommerce.com/.
