Special to Iredell Free News

Members of the Troutman community provided Troutman Elementary School with free fresh school-baked cookies. The cookies were delivered to all students and staff each Friday during the last eight weeks of school. The smiles tell the story of the amazing support from our community.

“Our school feels the love and wants to say thank you to the Troutman community for making our school smile one cookie at a time,” TES officials said in a news release.

Sponsors for cookies are Rocky Mount Church, Troutman Baptist Church, Bethel Baptist Church, Troutman Methodist Church, and four anonymous donors.

  1. That is a wonderful gesture. However, I wish the term “free” was not always used so loosely. This gives some individuals the impression that there was no cost to anyone. The term “donated” is a better term. Individuals regardless of age should learn that nothing is “free.”. There is a cost to someone. Then individuals would appreciate the source of the gift even more by beginning to understand that there was in fact a cost to someone, even though there is not a cost to the recipient. Obviously, my comments are directed to the reporter in this article.

  2. Barbara O Sprinkle says:

    Such a wonderful thing to do for the students and teachers! Very thankful my church could be part of this.
