Community 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!
