It's National Donut Day! Or, as we like to call it, the single greatest 24 hours of the entire year!
Did you know, unlike most "National this or that Day" holidays, Donut Day began for a very specific reason. The day was created in 1938 to honor the Donut Lassies from WWI, women who would volunteer for the Salvation Army to help boost soldier morale. The women really wanted to give the soldiers something handmade, so they scrounged up what they needed and made everyone's favorite treat - donuts. The soldiers would cheer when the women and their donuts arrived!
So, let's all cheer for Donut Day and check out five yummy places in Stillwater to get donuts, gelato, and more!
