A Sweet Way to Say Thank You

Reed Intermediate School in Newtown sent boxes full of cookies to Monroe employees to thank the town for taking in the Sandy Hook Elementary School.

The faculty and staff of Reed Intermediate School in Newtown baked "dozens upon dozens" of homemade cookies, brownies and other sweets for Monroe employees as a way of showing gratitude to the town for allowing Sandy Hook Elementary to use its building on Fan Hill Road following the shooting in Newtown.

Vida Stone, administrative assistant to First Selectman Steve Vavrek, told Patch that all town hall employees, the Highway Department and Board of Education received boxes of cookies and a card. The Monroe Police Department had previously received a box, she added.

The card in the First Selectman's Office reads:

Dear Town Hall Employees —

Just a small gesture of thanks for all of your support + efforts in helping our Sandy Hook family transition to their new home at Chalk Hill. We appreciate it so much.


The Faculty + Staff of Reed Intermediate School, Newtown, CT

So maybe out of this horrific tragedy comes a human bonding that brings some hope for humanity.
