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 Alyssa Webb, whom you may know from Main Street Donuts.

Are you originally from Mt. Pleasant/Henry County? If not, what brought you here? No, I was born in Tennessee. My parents were in need of work so we moved here, they were looking for a different kind of work experience.

What is your favorite part of living here? It’s a close-knit town. Everyone knows each other and everyone is nice.

What do you like to do in your free time? I like to try to travel to different towns and see what they have to offer. I really liked St. Charles, Mo.

Is there an annual event in Mt. Pleasant/Henry County that you enjoy? I like Old Threshers. There’s lots of extra stuff going on in town and a lot of people come into town.

Is there something Mt. Pleasant doesn’t have that you’d like to see? Something for kids to do, like an arcade or a bookshop.

What is your favorite summertime activity? Going to swim at Lake Darling or Lake Geode.

What do you think is Mt. Pleasant/Henry County’s trademark? Old Threshers. We have a lot of different people come in (Main Street Donuts) from different states and they all say the same thing, they enjoy Old Threshers.

What’s one dish or drink that reminds you of Mt. Pleasant? Something from Butch’s. They have this sandwich, it’s like a macaroni burger, it’s really good.

Tell us something interesting about you? I really like reading and writing. I’ll see people walk by the shop and I just try to come up with a story about their life and what they do.
