The story of Facebook, elections, and how it all relates to free donuts

I thought I’d tell a quick and interesting story about Facebook, the Primary Elections that happened this week in Vermont and Wisconsin (where we have municipal customers who were having primary election) and Donuts 🍩 — and how it’s all related.

On the morning of Election Tuesday in August 2018, I made a post to our Facebook page to see if any municipal customers that were busy with elections would like to have free donuts delivered to them. facebook post about free donuts during election

We did have an attentive town clerk, Connie at the Town of Fulton in Rock County, Wisconsin, who saw the post early in the morning and thought it would be a great idea for her election workers to get some sweet treats.

I called up the local Piggy Wiggly grocery store in Edgerton, Wisconsin and was transferred to the store manager who was happy to make a delivery in person. He said he needed to stop by the Town of Fulton anyhow to vote, so it all worked out! A short time later the goodies were delivered to give the election workers a needed sugar boost. 🍪

The moral of the story is to LIKE OUR FACEBOOK PAGE here:, because you just might get an opportunity for some donuts 🍩
