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 Kevin Dameron, whom you may know as a realtor with Steffes Group, Inc.
Are you originally from Mt. Pleasant/Henry County? If not, what brought you here? I am originally from Burlington. My wife, children and I lived in Danville for many years but purchased a home in Mt. Pleasant two years ago. The community was the selling point for our decision to move.
What is your favorite part of living here? While I still consider myself new to the Mt. Pleasant area, my wife and I keep finding more local events and places to explore. This is a close-knit community that carries a lot of pride. Looking back last year, when the storm came through right before Old Threshers, I was very impressed by the resilience of the community.
What is your favorite local hangout? I have found some great food and service at Walt’s Tap Room.
What do you like to do in your free time? In my free time, I enjoy traveling with my family and serving at Calvary Baptist Church in Mt. Pleasant.
What is your favorite spring activity? Since we live on the edge of the county club, while most people hunt for Morels, the kids and I search our woods for golf balls!
What is one thing you’ve not tried that you would like to? I’d love to experience white-water rafting.
Is there something Mt. Pleasant doesn’t have that you’d like to see? While the local coffee shops are great, I could probably support a Starbucks on my own!
What do you think is Mt. Pleasant/Henry County’s trademark? The community’s pride is definitely a trademark of the area.
What’s one dish or drink that reminds you of Mt. Pleasant? No question ... the Sarsaparilla and Cream Sodas from the Log Village!
Tell us something interesting about you? When my wife and I married, we knew we wanted a large family. We are blessed with 12 children and, as of recently, a wonderful son-in-law. It may make us the largest family in the area, but I’d have to verify it!
