One more for Donut Month 2014…not sure what year this was but guessing it’s during WW1. With little more than a pack on their backs and a M1903 rifle, our soldiers fought long and hard to keep the world free from tyrants. It is truly this sort of sacrifice that makes someone appreciate the little things, like a donut. So why don’t we all find a vet, thank him or her profoundly, and treat them to a coffee and donut.
As we celebrate our final #tbt of Donut Month, 2014 we take you back 70 years to Donut Month, 1944. With our troops deployed on opposite sides of the world and engaged in a valiant struggle against the Axis powers, the humble donut brought a taste of home to a lonely foxhole.
As we continue our walk down Memory Lane during Donut Month 2014, let’s take a look back to Donut Month, 1945, where then as well as today our fighting forces were given a warm welcome home after giving so much to protect that which we all hold dear.
As we continue to celebrate Donut Month 2014, let’s go back to the year that the first crystal-clear FM radio transmission was heard, Frank Sinatra gave his premiere singing performance in Indianapolis, Walt Disney’s “Pinocchio” premiered in New York City, Boston’s Jimmie Foxx HR went over Comiskey Park’s left field roof, McDonald’s opened its premiere restaurant in San Bernardino, California…
…and a box of donuts, a ball of string, some bow ties and a few good friends was all you needed for a great night of fun and games!
It’s harvest time, and as we all know, harvest time is donut time! First proclaimed in 1928, this year we celebrate the 86th annual Donut Month. This classic work of art celebrates Donut Month, 1949. An awful lot may have changed in the past 65 years, but the traditional bonding of donuts and the autumn season remains constant.
