September 29th is commonly “National Coffee Day” and what is a better way to celebrate way to celebrate it than to have a ribbon cutting for the new Yuma Dunkin’ Donuts.  This Dunkin’ Donuts located at 1651 S 4th Ave, Ste A-1 had actually opened a few weeks earlier however with a celebration of a different sort.  The Yuma Police Department lined up several police vehicles creating quite the spectacle in the drive thru lane.  Needless to say Yumans of all types, especially the police, are happy to have a Dunkin’ Donuts in town.  For more information on Dunkin’ Donuts and this particular location you can visit or give them a call at (928) 783-5548.
