Seventh grade students at Seton Catholic Middle School in Moline ruffle a few feathers when Thanksgiving rolls around. Using scissors and glue, and working with construction paper, the students make table decorations for Bob Vogelbaugh's annual Thanksgiving Day Community Dinner at Southpark Mall.

Art Teacher Linda Burau considers this to be a community service project. Over the years, her students have made thousands of construction paper pumpkins, turkeys, placemats, and banners as decorations.

Students hope that people at the dinner recognize the time and effort put into this project. Student Maddie Garcia says when kids come to Seton everyday, they are asked to think about others. This project is one way to carry out that mission.

The dinner will be from 4:30-6:30pm, Thanksgiving Day, at the mall.
