Donut Liberation Day (A Guide)
History of Donut Liberation Day
Donut Liberation Day, or “DLD” was first held in late September when we accompanied theHollidays for a casual drive up North to enjoy the changing Fall colors and to enjoy donuts at theCops & Doughnuts shop in downtown Clare.While we made other stops, such at Jay’s, our the most notable part of our journey occurredwhile we were at Cops & Doughnuts. The Holliday’s youngest son, Noah, locked himself in apair of handcuffs which were left on the display case in the back of the souvenir section of theshop. When his parents found out about it, they asked for help but soon learned that theemployees didn’t have keys on hand for the handcuffs. The handcuffs were eventually removedvia bolt cutters.The name “Donut Liberation Day” gets its name from the fact that Noah was “liberated” fromhandcuffs during a visit to Cops & Doughnuts. Other names such as “Take off the Handcuffs”and “Handcuffs & Donuts day” were considered but rejected.Besides, the point is to eat donuts.
Donut Liberation Day, March 4
Not willing to wait all of the way until the Fall, the founders of Donut Liberation Day made areturn trip to Cops & Doughnuts on March 4, 2012. Although the objective of eating donuts wassimilar, we made some slight adjustments to the bigger plan. We met at Sam’s Club for lunchbefore heading to Clare. We also didn’t make any other stops.
