Owego, NY (WBNG Binghamton) People in Tioga County come together to share a community meal before Thanksgiving.

More than 140 guests attended Tioga Opportunity's annual Thanksgiving dinner.

Musical entertainment by Winnie Allen and holiday decorations graced the meal.

Guests were seated in long rows of tables to simulate a traditional thanksgiving meal.

"I think that everyone's enjoying getting together, there's been so many things happening in the community with the flood and the storms, this is a day everyone can get out and be thankful for what we have," said Bonnie-Lee Kyle of Tioga Opportunities.

A nutritionist coordinated the menu to serve a healthy and well-balanced meal to its guests.

The meal was free to all guests.
