Today is National Social Media Day

We couldn't let this day go by without a shout out to all of you who like us on Facebook, THANK YOU!

Social Media Day is observed annually on June 30th. In its short life, social media has redefined how people interact, communicate and share with family, friends and the world.

With the launch of Friendster in 2002 and MySpace in 2003, social media had become mainstream. Then 2004 brought the founding of the king of social media, Facebook. Twitter encouraged us to be succinct by posting our thoughts with fewer than 140 characters. We can be social through Instagram and Flickr by sharing all the pictures and videos you love. And speaking of video, YouTube is the social place for everything from how-to to pop culture to what not to do with your fireworks on the 4th of July.

Social media has made it possible to stay connected and informed about with those important people in our lives. Reconnecting with classmates, past work associates and more is also a valuable part of social media. It has also made it possible to connect with ancestors and find relatives you never even knew existed. Yes, the family tree has become a social media platform as well. MyHeritage.com and Ancestry.com and many others all supply a social platform where distant family members have the potential to meet and built their family trees.

The Oath of the Soldier

Memorial Day – For most it is a three-day weekend, filled with bar-b-que’s and picnics . . . A time to get away from the normal humdrum of the week. For other’s it’s the beginning of summer, a time to look towards the long lazy days and a time to plan your summer get-a-ways. Though for some, Memorial Day holds a special significance.

On May 5, 1868, an order issued by General John Logan established a day of remembrance for those soldiers who died during the Civil War. May 30, 1868, was the day designated for this observance and flowers were placed on the graves of the fallen soldiers of both the Union and Confederate Armies. New York was the first state to officially recognize this observance in 1873 and in 1971 with the passage of the National Holiday Act; Memorial Day was designated as the last Monday of May.

Today is National Donut Day

Come celebrate National Donut Day at DoughBoys Donuts and feel good knowing a portion of our proceeds will be donated to the Salvation Army!

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.

The doughnuts were often cooked in oil inside the metal helmets of American soldiers. American infantrymen were then commonly called “doughboys.” A more standard spelling is donut.

Today is National Take Your Parents to the Playground Day

Get outstide have some fun and once everyone is all tired out come on down to DoughBoys Donuts and enjoy a donut!

Kids, you work hard every day. It’s time to show your parents just how hard you work. After all, your primary job is to play, and the third Sunday in May is National Take Your Parents to the Playground Day!

Outdoor play offers the obvious benefit of physical activity helping to build strong muscles and bones. It also engages the child’s imagination which contributes to developing creativity as well as self-confidence. But, a child’s work doesn’t stop there. Playing with others includes games, focus, and attention. As a result, playing teaches leadership and negotiation skills. The more children play, the healthier, smarter and happier they are.
