When I drive by the old Dawn Donuts on State Street, it reminds me of going to the one on Bay Road with my mom. I would sit at the counter on the chrome stools while she ordered a dozen of those sugary breakfast treats. I took this photo a while ago before the boards went up over the windows. I heard a few years ago there was going to be a Chinese restaurant going in the old “temple to the baking gods” but that deal must have fallen through. The Dawn Donuts on Hess is a phone store, I hope someday the one on State will be used again.
Reminder: I will be at Zauel Library on Tuesday, November 19th at 7:00pm giving a presentation on why I started Pure Saginaw and Lost In Michigan. I will also be sharing some of my photos and stories. I hope you can join me next week
