    Buchanan Student Council and Festival of Trees.

    Festival of TreesCommunity involvement is just one important aspect of our newly formed Buchanan Student Council.  Recently council members donated time and talent to design and decorate a small pine tree for display at the Quad City Art’s Festival of Trees.  This year’s theme was “Walking a Winter Wonderland.” The council members used various recycled materials to create their masterpiece.  It was seen at this year’s festival by over 100,000 Quad Citians. 

     

    Great Job Council Members!
