Doughboys and Doughnut Lassies

First Division Museum
6:30 pm – 9:00 pm
Registration Required
Guests must be 21+


Three good things are undoubtedly better than one so join us for drinks, dessert, and history! An iconic soldier favorite of World War I, donuts, were on hand to offer some comforts of home during the hardships of war. Enjoy some planned donut, and beer samplings then take an after hour stroll through our gallery to get in the know about World War I, its impact on modern history, and why 100 years later it’s worth remembering.

Debra Dudek will present the “20 Things You Didn’t Know about World War I” in our museum pavilion. Wait until you see what number 1 is!

This event is for guests 21+ and over
