Donut Day a Delicious Celebration

National Donut Day was a hit across the Ontario Great Lakes Division!

Almost 700 donuts were given out to celebrate National Donut Day in London. We would like to thank Rundle's No Frills for their generous donation in order to make this event a tremendous success.

“The donut is a symbol of our history and another way to show our appreciation to the servicemen and women, says Major Pat Phinney, Divisional Secretary for Public Relations.
