Students bake cookies to thank Eugene Public Works for ice storm response

EUGENE, Ore. - Eugene Public Works received a sweet surprise Thursday afternoon: students from Life Lutheran School delivered homemade cookies.

It was their way of saying "thank you" to public works crews for their hard work during the December ice storm.

The students baked about 200 cookies during class, then dropped them off Thursday afternoon. Their teacher said it was a great way to teach them service and giving back.

"We mainly wanted to bake cookies to give thanks to all the tree workers for what they have done," said 10-year-old Nora Rodabaugh.

Eugene Public Works is still cleaning up the aftermath of the December ice storm.

Brian Richardson with Public Works says at last count, they had cleared hazards from an estimated 3,200 trees, and there are still a handful left.
