BHS Hosts Annual Thanksgiving Dinner

BHS Hosts 23rd Annual Thanksgiving Dinner
Posted on 11/14/2018
What does it take to host the 23rd annual BHS Community Thanksgiving dinner? Well for starters, 1,120 lbs of turkey, 800 lbs of stuffing, 550 lbs of sweet potatoes, 300 pies and 30 gallons of gravy. And that’s just the food. This Thursday, Nov. 22 from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. 200 students, faculty and staff will volunteer to spend part of their holiday serving dinner to an estimated 1,500 people.
“We are pleased that we can continue to host the Thanksgiving Dinner at BHS,” said Kevin J. Richman principal at BHS. “Our students make this event possible as they assist with everything from the planning and fundraising to the clean-up at the end of the day. This is a special opportunity to come together as a community in support of each other.”
This year First Student will again be offering a free bus-shuttle service to enable those with transportation concerns to attend the dinner. Buses will start at 11 a.m. followed with a continuous shuttle to and from BHS until 1:30 p.m. when buses will leave the high school for returns only.

Shuttle #1: 11 a.m. Franklin Elementary School (Conklin Ave)
11:15 a.m. North Shore Towers (Isbell Street)

Shuttle #2: 11 a.m. Greater Binghamton Transportation Center (Chenango Street)

11:15 a.m. First Ward Senior Citizens Center (Clinton Street)

Please note there are no home delivery or takeout meals available. Also the community dinner is staffed entirely by BHS students and staff members. The dinner is possible because of community donations and fundraising by the students of the BHS National Honor Society.
