October 15th - Donut Day

It is an "all hands on deck" October 15th for our day at Pilgrim Church and the Farmer's Market to make and sell the donuts!  There is a job for everyone - from mixing the batter, frying the donuts, sugaring the donuts and selling the donuts.  Helpers range in age from 7 to 67.  We start at 4am with the early morning crew who got the process started, ending with the clean up crew who come on board at 10:30am and stayed until all the donuts are sold and the kitchen cleaned up.
