8th Annual BV Strong Community Dinner

Monday, September 20, 2021

Still Strong… But Different .

The BV Strong Community Dinner arose out of time of sadness and challenge for our community. In 2020, we again find ourselves in a difficult time as we serve visitors and yet try to protect ourselves from COVID-19. Those of us who organize the BV Strong Community Dinner could not be prouder of the way our community has worked together to survive and thrive during these difficult times.

Difficult times require flexibility and change. It is with great disappointment that the BV Strong Community Dinner Board announces that the 7th annual event scheduled for Monday, September 21, 2020, will not take place as planned. While we are convinced that this annual event is vital to keep our community strong and connected, we can’t, in good conscience, sponsor an event that would bring so many of us in close proximity during this time of the coronavirus. The overall safety of our community is more important than holding the Dinner this year.


Instead, please plan to dine with your family on September 21, 2020, take a photo, and post it on our Facebook group with the hashtag #BVStrong.

We will be BV Strong together… digitally this year!

Please save the date for next year’s dinner on Monday, September 20, 2021.

We will have even more to celebrate as we come through the pandemic… together. We’re looking forward to breaking bread with you in 2021!

8th Annual BV Strong Community Dinner, 9/20/2021









“Just dinner.”


The simple mission of the BV Strong Community Dinner Planning Team is, “Just dinner!” We strive to create a locally-funded and locally-organized annual activity where the residents of Buena Vista come together in a nonpolitical, noncommercial, non-promotional event to share food and friendship as we celebrate and nurture a sense of community.



The dinner is FREE to attend for all our guests, and there is no cost to host a table! This is only possible through generous donations from your fellow neighbors and local businesses right here in BV. 


Your gift will be used for expenses such as table and chair rentals, sanitation, centerpieces, table signage, and other set-up costs.


The BV Strong Community Dinner is a 501(c)(3) non-profit public charity, and your gifts are tax-deductible. 

THANK YOU! Please make checks payable to “BV Strong Community Dinner.”
