I just saw that next weekend is Rescue 33 Donut Days in Chillicothe.
I remember this event fondly from my childhood. Mom would always bring home a box or two of the cake donuts, which would always include one covered with rainbow sprinkles. Really, it was about the only time of year I ate donuts.
When I got my first job in Chillicothe, one of my co-workers was on the volunteer squad at Rescue 33, and would ask for time off each year to go make the donuts.
2008's Event will run March 14th, 15th and 16th.
The donuts are $4 a dozen and come with either vanilla icing, chocolate icing, cinnamon & sugar, powdered sugar, plain or sprinkles.
During the three day event Rescue 33 members, families and friends make the donuts at the Rescue 33 garage. Donuts are available at local grocery stores and gas stations and the ambulance garage at 1217 Santa Fe Ave. in Chillicothe. Deliveries are also available to the immediate area.
Donut Days is one of main ways Rescue 33 raises funds for their volunteer ambulance service.
