The annual celebration was attended by approximately 75 volunteers who were heard to say "delicious!" "yummy!" "wonderful!" and "I want the recipe!" when they sat down to enjoy the tea delights and sandwiches such as chicken/cranberry and walnut salad, and egg and dill salad, along with trays of delicious sliced fruits and berries. What would an afternoon tea be without desserts? The culinary students prepared the popular red velvet and lemon cupcake bites.

Madison's culinary arts program recently won the San Diego Teen Iron Chef competition and is one of six programs in the San Diego Unified School District.

Entertained by the Magnet Musicians, Lindbergh Schweitzer's own guitar students led by music instructor Linda Williams – herself a volunteer – the volunteers went home with lots of raffle prizes, table favors, and certificates.

"Honoring these fabulous volunteers is a tradition at Lindbergh Schweitzer, one which models the importance of service to our communities," said principal Deanne Rohde. "Volunteers are another reason Lindbergh Schweitzer students are successful in the classroom and in life. Thank you, volunteers, for all you do for our students and our school!"
