Each year on the first Friday in June, people participate in National Doughnut or Donut Day. This day celebrates the doughnut and honors the Salvation Army Lassies, the women that served doughnuts to soldiers during WWI.
In 1917, the original “Salvation Army Doughnut” was first served by the ladies of the Salvation Army. It was during WWI that the Salvation Army Lassies went to the front lines of Europe. Home cooked foods, provided by these brave volunteers, were a morale boost to the troops.
In commemoration of that day here at Sehnert’s we will be offering the following:
Specials – Friday, June 2nd
• Free Donut for veterans – a small token of our appreciation!
Thank you for your service!
• Baker’s Dozen – get 13 rolls/donuts for the price of 12
We’ll see you at Sehnert’s!
