Birthdays And Anniversaries For June 5th + Doughnut Day
If this is your birthday, congratulations! You share the same date as, Don Reid, born in Staunton, Virginia, in 1945. In 1961, he joins a gospel harmony group that becomes The Statler Brothers, netting more than 30 hits from 1965-1989 on its way into the Country Music Hall of Fame. Happy 70th, Don. Also celebrating today, songwriter Brett James born in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, in 1968. His credits include Martina McBride's "Blessed," Dierks Bentley's "I Hold On," Jason Aldean's "The Truth" and Carrie Underwood's "Jesus, Take The Wheel". Happy 47th, Brett.
This Is National Doughnut Day!
National Doughnut Day was established in 1938 by the Chicago Salvation Army to raise much-needed funds during the Great Depression, and to honor the work of World War I Salvation Army volunteers who prepared doughnuts and other foods for thousands of soldiers.
Note: The word "Doughnut" is often shortened to "Donut. So, if you see the term National Donut Day, its the same day.
