Event Title



How about a silly event to break out of the lockdown doldrums...National Donut Day is June 5 every year and pays tribute to a World War I event...

From the Nationaldaycalendar.com:

"National Doughnut Day, or National Donut Day — celebrated in the United States, is on the first Friday of June of each year, succeeding the Doughnut event created by The Salvation Army in Chicago in 1938 to honor those of their members who served doughnuts to soldiers during World War I.."

From Wikipedia:

"National Doughnut Day was created by The Salvation Army in 1938 to honor the women who served the doughnuts to soldiers in World War I. This day began as a fund-raiser for Chicago's Salvation Army. The goal of their 1938 fund-raiser was to help the needy during the Great Depression."

A day to have fun and pay tribute and honor those who "served"...

The plan is to venture out to the amazing Shorty's Donuts in Placerville:


Their Instagram page has all sorts of pictures:
