Friday, June 7, is National Doughnut Day, which is celebrated on the first Friday of June each year. It was originally established in 1938 by the Chicago Salvation Army to honor women who served doughnuts to soldiers during World War I.
Chimirri’s Italian Pastry Shoppe, 1075 Silas Deane Highway, in Wethersfield is celebrating with free “Hartford Cream Doughnuts” on Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. (The confections are filled with cannoli cream and topped with chocolate ganache.) Information: www.chimirrispastry.com.
Dunkin’ Donuts is also marking the day with a goodie giveaway. Stop by a participating location, buy any beverage and you’ll get a free doughnut-of-your-choice. Information: DunkinDonuts.com.
