Dear members and constituents, For the last Donut Friday of the year, I thought it would be appropriate to celebrate the Holiday Spirit with a Cheerful (and familiar) tune. So put on your elf caps, pull up your snow boots and sing along with me. Ready? On the 12th day of Christmas my true love gave to me a baker's dozen, 11 sprinkled donuts, 10 apple fritters, nine maple bars, eight powder bizmarks, seven chocolate covered, six Boston cream-filled, five donut holes, four sour cream, three cake donuts, two bear claws and hot and gooey Krispy Kreme glazed. If this doesn't make you hungry, I don't know what will. So come on down and make your holiday season bright with a delicious donut of your choosing, courtesy of Sara Baack (donut girl) Happy Friday!
Donuts are part of the magic that makes life so sweet. I founded the Level 3 Friday Donut Club in 2004 and ran it until my departure in 2015. It had a three year run at Windstream and is now virtual, but at its peak, we had a rotation of 50+ folks who brought donuts every Friday. We had three simple rules: (1) five dozen (2) boutique shop donuts (3) by 8:00 am. This blog memorializes these e-mails to share my thoughts (and, once upon a time, announce the donut arrival). Have a happy Friday!
