Bob Vogelbaugh, commonly known this time of year as Mr. Thanksgiving, held his 42nd annual Thanksgiving dinner at South Park Mall in Moline on Thursday, November 22nd, 2012.

Vogelbaugh had said he was thinking about retiring after this year's feast, but he's decided to continue his tradition.

"When you've got people coming up here thanking you, you got kids pulling at your pant legs thanking you... you'd have to almost have a heart of stone, so I said as long as I have my health, I will do it with the cooperation of the mall."

Vogelbaugh also says people have been donating more to help with the estimated $16,000 meal.

"It's amazing what the people do."
