Mayor Pro-Tem Dale Dalton offered updates from Town Hall.  After many years in the works, St. Luke’s Catholic Church finally broke ground in their new location off Highway 218.  The Town continues to work on its 10-year plan.  There are no more public meetings, but the Town is still accepting feedback online: https://publicinput.com/minthillplan.  Dalton also reminds everyone in Mint Hill to vote on Tuesday, November 2.  Early voting is already underway at the Mint Hill Public Library and will continue through Saturday, October 30.  Mayor Dalton was joined at the luncheon by Commissioner Tony Long and Commissioner Candidate Twanna Henderson.  

The Chamber welcomed several new members this month.  Madi McKinney from SeaTrust Mortgage and Jenny Cornagie from RePot Houseplants & Eco Gifts were present to accept their Chamber plaques.

This month’s featured speaker was Paul Blanchette from Nerds to Go.  Blanchette spoke about cybersecurity, offering advice for small business owners to recognize and prevent potentially debiltating cyber attacks.  Look for practical tips from Paul in next week’s issue of The Mint Hill Times.

The Third Annual Cornhole Tournament hosted by the Chamber of Commerce and sponsored by Pour 64 and Hawthorne’s Pizza was a huge success!  Location sponsor Pour 64 took home first place with second and third going to Terry Aaseby & Son and MCH Chiropractic and Nutrition.  The Tournament raised over $1100 for the Chamber’s scholarship program.

There’s a lot coming up to look forward to in the Chamber of Commerce!  The “Best of Mint Hill Photo Contest” sponsored by 1st Choice Properties continues through November 30.  The winners will be announced on December 16.  There are several Ribbon Cuttings coming up, including Dawson Modern Dentistry, Mint Hill Flower Market, and the much-awaited new Chick-Fil-A location.  The Chamber is also looking forward to its annual Pop Up Christmas Shop on December 10.

The next Monthly Member Luncheon will be held on November 16 at Olde Sycamore Golf Plantation.  For more information on joining the Chamber of Commerce, visit https://www.minthillchamberofcommerce.com/.
