National Donut Day is JUNE 2nd!
Each year, more and more days are added to our calendars in celebration of an obscure color or underrated food and we celebrate them all in joy. JUNE 2nd 2017, however, is one of our favorites here in the bakery! It’s National Donut Day! Finally, an entire day devoted to donuts! It’s about time these sweet babies start getting the respect they deserve!
What is this, National Donut Day?
During WWI, women referred to as “Doughnut Girls” served on the front lines providing our men with coffee and donuts. Thus, the Salvation Army Doughnut Lassie was born.
In 1917 over 250 volunteers headed to France to serve our country. In addition to providing hot coffee and baked goods, these women provided clothes, supplies, and moral support. There are several stories on the two women who adapted to the conditions in wartime yet overcame to give our men the best they could.
In 1938, in honor of those who served in both WWI and WWII, the Salvation Army created National Donut Day.
And, now that they are, we’re celebrating in a BIG way.
What are we doing for National Donut Day?
Friday, June 2nd is NATIONAL DONUT DAY and we are all hard at work prepping to make it the most special day yet.
We will be offering a wide array of fresh made donuts in a variety of flavors and toppings including our SPRING signature donut flavor of STRAWBERRY and, for this one day only, we will roll out our Cinotti’s original, PUMPKIN donuts.
**Due to the overwhelming demand of PUMPKIN donuts, we have a two (2) dozen maximum on Pumpkin donuts only. We STRONGLY suggest pre-ordering these donuts to insure we have them for you.**
As always, we thank our men and women of the armed forces who serve.
Your sacrifice and service to our country can never be repaid. From the bottom of our hearts…. THANK YOU!
