“Drop cookies, not bombs!”
That was the message Felix Barron, a Grade 8 student at Wildflower, wanted to share with the community on Wednesday morning as he roamed Baker St. with his classmates sharing cookies with passersby.
“We thought we’d do a random act of kindness for International Peace Day and hand out cookies,” Barron told the Star. “A lot of people made them at home — some families made like four dozen — and we actually made 422 cookies overall.”
And what kinds were on offer?
“We have shortbread, some chocolate chip, sugar cookies, oatmeal raisin — we’ve got all kinds.”
Another message written on one of the notes that accompanied the treats: “Peace is Sweet!”
