Doughnut Dolly Days
June 05, 2015
9:00 am - 5:00 pm
The traditional American doughnut has an important place in the history of the armed forces. During World War I, the Salvation Army sent women to France to lift the spirits of the soldiers – and to serve them comfort food. Their food of choice? Hot donuts. The women became known as “Doughnut Girls,” or "Doughnut Dollies" and the soldiers, “doughboys.” Doughnut Day was event created by The Salvation Army in 1938 to honor the women who served doughnuts to soldiers during World War I. Join us Friday, June 5th at the Smith House on the grounds of the Presidential Library and celebrate the contribution of these Salvation Army Girls and enjoy some delicious doughnuts on us.
