This is a drive-thru event in which former Hanford workers are being thanked for their efforts with a delicious assortment of donuts and sweet treats.

At the same time they celebrate 75+ years of Hanford history, the Spudnut Shop is celebrating 73 years of tasty baked goods including their famous potato flour donut.
