Your Friend on the Front Page

Every week, the Mt. Pleasant News will feature a Henry County resident in a profile snapshot. The questions will appear in bold.

This week?s ?Friend on the Front Page? is Heather Leichty, whom you may know from Your Dream Home Furniture and Flooring.

Are you originally from Mt. Pleasant/Henry County? My family has lived in Henry County for over 100 years. My parents moved us back to the area to be near their families when I was eight years old.

What is your favorite part of living here? The friendly small town atmosphere.

What is your favorite local hangout? We love to have family and friends over to our house, spend time at FCOC, and Main Street Cinemas is a great place to spend an evening.

What do you like to do in your free time? I love to spend time with my family and friends, cooking, baking and volunteering with the kids at FCOC.

Is there an annual event in Mt. Pleasant/Henry County you enjoy? Old Threshers is such a great tradition ? going with family to enjoy the food, music and displays is such fun.

Is there something Mt. Pleasant doesn?t have that you would like to see? It would be wonderful to see more fun and interesting shops in our fantastic downtown area.

What is your favorite winter activity? Sitting in front of the fire with hot tea and reading a book or going sledding.

What?s one dish or drink that reminds you of Mt. Pleasant? That is a tough question because we have so many terrific restaurants that have delicious cuisine from pizza to burgers, Mexican to Asian. I can?t choose just one.

Tell us something interesting about you. I learned to auction with my dad when I was 10 years old and still enjoy doing charity auctions.
