Back Again for 2015 We are very pleased to bring back to Sound View the
“original” Beach Donuts
As many of you know after 60+ years of continuous operation, last summer the Donut Shop was abruptly forced to close. Ted, the owner, is still making his award winning donuts and supplying them to selected outlets throughout southeastern CT. In cooperation with the Shoreline Community Center and the Sound View Beach Association, Ted will be providing freshly made donuts each weekend, from Memorial Day to Labor Day. These donuts will be on sale here at the Shoreline Community Center, Saturday, Sunday and holidays beginning at 7:00am to 10:30am or until sold out.
All sale profits go to support the Shoreline Community Center and the staff are all volunteers from the Sound View Beach Association.
