Former District Attorney Leonard will share stories as they relate to the Doughboy Statue in Columbus, and the World War 1 volunteers who, in 1938, provided donuts in support of soldiers fighting in Europe as they experienced a shortage of food, causing low morale of the troops.    

Those who are unable to bring homemade ice cream can bring donuts, toppings, or fruits and beverage. Ice and paperware will be provided.

The center is located at 207 Big Level Road,  3.5 miles east of Mill Spring, just off Highway 108. 

Community recycleables are accepted all day on June 14.
