Piqua Daily Call: There are two big events coming up this weekend in Covington to share with you in this December edition of Calling Around Covington. Both events take place on Saturday, so read on to find out more.
The third annual Free Christmas Dinner will be this Saturday, Dec. 13, from 4-7 p.m. at the Covington Eagles Hall. This community-wide event is held by a group of citizens who would like the folks of Covington, Pleasant Hill, and Bradford to enjoy a hearty Christmas dinner. It is totally free of charge and is completely funded through generous donations from the community. The spokesperson of the ‘Free Christmas Dinner Team’ shared some information and history of the event.
It started with a small group of community-minded folks, and before they knew it, there was a date, food, a location, and over 80 servants dishing out a great meal for 750 people that first year. This year, they are expecting to serve 1,000 meals, and any leftover food is taken to St. Patrick’s Soup Kitchen in Troy, so nothing goes to waste. The dinner is advertised in the Covington, Pleasant Hill, and Bradford communities, but people from other communities are welcome to stop by if they need a good meal.
Many others help make this event a success each year, so allow me to spotlight those individuals. First, Robert Besecker of Stillwater Valley Catering provides all the food at a very good price. The Christmas Dinner Team is very thankful for Robert and his team’s help! Also, the Covington Eagles Aerie #3998 provides the banquet hall at no charge. They are extremely thankful for this kind gesture, as well as all the other great things the Eagles do for our community. The Scott Family McDonald’s of Piqua provides orange drink and the coolers each year, and the Piqua Boy Scout Troop assists with delivering meals. About 80 people help serve the meals and clean up, and it couldn’t be done without them.
Again, the meal is totally free, but tax-deductible donations are accepted, and $5.25 provides one meal. If anyone would like to contribute, you may write a check payable to the Covington Community Chest. Mail the donation to the Community Chest at 7910 N. McMaken Road, Covington, OH, 45318. Lastly, deliveries are available; just call (937) 473-5324 at least 24 hours prior to the event to schedule delivery. And don’t be surprised if Santa Claus makes an appearance with treats for the kids!

Overall, everyone was friendly and we will definitely recommend you to our friends and family in the future!

Robynn's contribution with the food was wonderful - especially the sausage garlic bread appetizer (highly recommend). The dessert bar was also a big hit!

Leslie & Lee Harmon: We loved, loved, LOVED the décor and food at our wedding reception that Robin & Robert at Stillwater Valley Catering provided! We heard over and over from our guests how great the draping and lights in the room looked, and everyone raved about Robin's food. We had beef, pork, and chicken sliders, homemade potato chips (highly recommend), deviled eggs, coleslaw, potato salad, caprese salad with an olive topiary (awesome), and shrimp cocktail shooters (a guest favorite). For a late night snack, mini Reuben sandwiches, beer & bacon dip with pretzel rods, and assorted coffees, desserts, cheeses, and meat were served. Presentation of food was elegant, and everything tasted incredible! Robin, Robert, and staff arrived on time, were dressed professionally, and courteous to everyone. They stayed the entire evening, and attended to everything, including a couple things we hadn't thought about. They made the reception a hit! We highly recommend them for any event-big or small. You will NOT be disappointed with their prices, food, décor, or service.

LeAnne Murphy: We had Stillwater Valley Catering cater my daughter's graduation party. They helped with every aspect, from entertainment suggestions, decorations and of course the food. They took such a huge load off my shoulders at such a busy time and always were very available and helpful. The party was a hit and the food was amazing. I can hardly look at the pictures on your web page, I am getting so hungry! Everything was top notch! I have another graduating in 2012, pencil me in! Thanks for everything!!!
Brian Marshall: I have had the privilege of attending many events that were planned and hosted by Stillwater Valley Catering and I have never been to another event that can compare to the excellent food, decorations and service that Stillwater Valley Catering provides. They are professional in every aspect from presentation to final cleanup. The food is unbelievable and I have never tasted as good catered food from any other company. I would highly recommend Stillwater Valley Catering to anyone planning a wedding or other type of event! One word describes them...fantastic!
Donna & Pete Kitta: We had Stillwater Valley Catering for our daughter's outdoor wedding. With a guest list of 250, they kept quite busy. We had a huge customized menu complete with shredded pork and beef with a choice of bbq sauces (and slider buns), fajita bar, grilled chicken breasts, and steaks grilled to order. They also provided all the trimmings such as mashed potato bar, slaw, salad, rolls, etc., etc. All the food was superb and the service was outstanding and very professional. Despite being outdoors, they kept the food warm and their clean up was fantastic. If you want a professional caterer who can provide a personalized menu, we would highly recommend Stillwater Valley Catering. I am sure their standardized menus are wonderful as well....but it was very nice to finally find a caterer who provided a menu of our own choosing. We were 100% satisfied with the service and meal we were provided. Thanks to Robert and Robyn for a memorable meal to go along with our outdoor wedding. NO complaints from this family!
Heather P.: I attended a 50'th Wedding Anniversary party that was completely done by Stillwater Valley Catering and what a wonderful event it was. The food, decorations, flowers and just the overall atmosphere was perfect for the setting. My daughter will be getting married next year and we know who we are going to have plan her big day!
Aaron Morrison: Have you heard the saying a picture is worth a thousand words? Well in this case that picture doesn't apply because STILLWATER VALLEY CATERING'S food & service is worth more than those thousand words. Simply amazing!!
Tony Altic: Stillwater Valley Catering created a beautiful wedding reception that words cannot describe. The food was delicious and the decorations/lighting throughout turned a boring hall into a beautiful reception that had everyone talking.
