Mint Hill Residents,
This past week, Mint Hill said goodbye to Colonel Billy June Reid. The name may not be familiar to you, but he is a very important part of Mint Hill’s history. The Korean War Memorial at Veterans Park has a marker with the following inscription: Chapter 265, North Carolina Korean War Veterans Association wishes to thank Colonel Billy J. Reid and Captain Don Putnam for their untiring efforts in making the North Carolina Korean War Veterans Memorial possible to honor all Korean War veterans including KIA and MIA. Our thoughts and prayers are with Colonel Reid’s family during this difficult time.
We are coming up on Memorial Day this weekend. For many, it is the unofficial beginning of summer. For others, it is a weekend for beach trips, barbecues with friends and fireworks. For all of us, it should be a day to honor those Americans who gave their lives for our country. The brave men and women who paid the ultimate price, leaving behind loved ones and families, for our freedom and way of life. Since the Revolutionary War ended, 646,596 American troops have died in battle and more than 539,000 died from other, non-combat related causes.
The Mint Hill American Legion Post #555 will be hosting their 2nd Annual Memorial Day event on Monday, May 29 at Mint Hill Veterans Memorial Park, 8850 Fairview Road starting at 11:00 am. Please join and support Post #555 in commemorating the Veterans that gave the ultimate sacrifice.
Whatever your plans are this weekend, take a moment to reflect and say a prayer for the brave men and women who gave their lives for our freedom and the families who lost them.
Lastly, since Monday is a holiday, all trash service will be delayed by one day next week.
Enjoy your holiday weekend. It looks like we are in for some summer weather.
Mint Hill Mayor
