BV Strong Dinner

Tonight, at 5:45 p.m., the Town of Buena Vista will be breaking bread and sharing a meal with their neighbors.  Please join us!

This event began in 2014,  a year after the Agnes Vaille Fall tragedy that took the lives of a local family, as a way to celebrate this community in a very unique way.  Locals have the opportunity to host as many tables as they wish and invite as many guests as they wish.

The last time I checked, there were 400 tables reserved which comes to  3200 chairs, 1200 pounds of meat, 3120 rolls and close to $7000 in donations to cover the costs.

Hosts provide drinks, table service, side dishes and dessert.  If you are at my table, you will be experiencing mac & cheese, cucumber feta salad and cherry dump cake!  Can’t wait!

This community dinner occurs the last week of September, once the tourists have gone home, school is back in session, and our residents can finally catch their breath after a busy, crazy summer.  It’s a time to reflect on the good in our lives and to come together in unity.
