Coming up this evening in Tomahawk, the Historical Society is hosting a special presentation on one of the hidden stories in that history. Tonight's discussion will be on a group of women known as the Doughnut Girls. Terry Derleth with the Historical Society stopped by the WJJQ studios yesterday to give a sneak preview of this evening's program. The Doughnut girls date back to World War I. Lead by Evangeline Booth, the small group with the Salvation Army actually traveled to the frontlines in France to simply provide comfort and a piece of home that included serving up breakfasts for the troops. Due to limited supplies, they would find themselves making due with equipment on hand including frying doughnuts in an oil-filled helmet over an open flame. Derleth called the story "inspirational on so many different levels." You can hear more about the story of the Doughnut Girls this evening at 6pm at the Buedingen CenterĀ  (W6147 State Road 86) in Tomahawk.
