MINT HILL, NC – On Tuesday, June 15, the Mint Hill Chamber of Commerce held its monthly Member Luncheon at Olde Sycamore Golf Plantation.
MHCC Board of Directors President and Kim Rhodarmer (Servant’s Heart) welcomed members to the luncheon. Director Navondria Huggins (Blessed Assurance Adult Day Care) led the group in prayer, and Director Phil Angelo (Leisure Travel Experts) led the Pledge of Allegiance. Blakley Atkins of of Farm Bureau NC received a new member plaque, and the Chamber welcomed five additional new members who were not present at the luncheon: Benjie Greene (Black’s Tire & Auto Service), Maria Frey (Pottery 51), Dawson Modern Dentistry, Mint Hill Orthodontics and Mint Hill Wealth.
Commissioner Mike Cochrane updated members on the ongoing construction of O’Reilly Auto Parts (Philadelphia Church Road and Hwy 218) and Chick-Fil-A (downtown Mint Hill across from Town Hall). Cochrane noted that the new Chick-Fil-A sits on over 2 acres, making it one of the biggest in NC in terms of land area. Cochrane hopes the large lot will help control traffic and alleviate residents’ concerns about traffic in downtown Mint Hill.
