National Donut Day is Friday, June 2, and why it would be this day at the beginning of the summer is a question I can’t answer but we are all here for it.

Something new I learned about this day is that it’s not just for us to indulge in this sugary treat, but it’s also to honor the Salvation Army Lassies who were women that served doughnuts to soldiers during World War I.
