The day after Thanksgiving, 30 Stevens Middle School Honor Society students volunteered their time to serve all day at the Olympic Memorial Teddy Bear Tea. Most guarded trees during the event and cleaned the tables after each tea. Some dressed as characters and served guests at tables during the event. They worked alongside community members, hospital staff, entertainers, and those volunteering from the high school. Now in its 27th year, the annual event is a  fundraiser for the Olympic Medical Center Foundation. Families come to the event with their young children to watch performances, enjoy the decorated trees, and get a visit with Santa Claus. Proceeds from the event help the local hospital.
           
Then on Saturday and Sunday, 17 Stevens Honor Society Students ran activity stations, served at the doors, and cleaned-up during the Olympic Memorial Hospital Festival of Trees event. This is also a fundraiser for the Olympic Medical Center Foundation that invites the community to view the decorated trees and take part in activities at Vern Burton Community Center.

 “This is a letter of THANK YOU !The students were great! We had many hands to make work easier. All performed with high standards and good work ethics! Please tell them how much I appreciated all the work they did and how helpful they were,” wrote Cookie Kalfur, event coordinator for the Festival of Trees.

The Stevens Middle School Art class also participated in this year's event by preparing two trees that were auctioned during the event.
