Calling Around Covington: St. Teresa Catholic Church hosting fish fries

In my last column, a mere fortnight ago, I mentioned the annual Covington High School Scholarship Fund Spaghetti Supper. Now it is almost here, and will take place next Tuesday, March 22. This scrumptious Italian dinner will be served from 4:30-6:30 p.m. in the Covington Schools K-8 school cafeteria. All proceeds from the spaghetti supper go to the Covington Schools Scholarship Fund Program.

The menu features all-you-can-eat Italian spaghetti and garlic toast. It also includes homemade coleslaw, dessert, and a drink. The cost for dinners this year is a meager $7 per person. Carryout meals will also be available. The Spaghetti Supper coincides with the community scholarship fund drive, which is now currently underway for 2022. Donations to the scholarship fund may be sent to Ms. Laura Ayres at Covington High School, 807 Chestnut Street, Suite A, Covington, OH 45318. The community’s continued support of the Covington Scholarship Fund is greatly appreciated. For more information, call (937) 473-2856.

Later next week, on Friday, March 25, the Covington Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post #4235 will hold a “Covington Strong” event. This event is to honor 14 years (already!) since the VFW caught fire and was destroyed in 2008. Obviously it was rebuilt, and will host live entertainment that evening from 8 p.m. until midnight. The band “Dyslexic Funk” will perform. They offer blues rock, classic rock, and a little bit of country music tossed in as well. This concert is open to the public; one does not need to be a VFW member to attend. Or plan to make it an entire evening, as the VFW Canteen will be offering a broasted chicken meal beginning at 5:30 p.m. The Covington VFW #4235 is located at 173 N. High St., and plenty of parking is available, accessible from their driveway off of Main Street or another lot is across High Street.

The J.R. Clarke Library has moved back into its usual location at 102 E. Spring Street. Their renovations are almost complete, and J.R. Clarke’s trustee board and library staff are thrilled to once again be of service for their patrons, community and school. The remodeled lower-level community room can now accommodate most everyone with the new elevator that has been installed. So community organizations, companies, homeschool groups, churches, etc. are invited to call the library at (937) 473-2226 to reserve the room for their event.

The Community Room is now larger, more efficient and includes a complete kitchen. It can hold up to 100 people comfortably. There is also now meeting space for various-sized groups in other areas of the Library. Since J.R. Clarke is a public location for everyone, there is no specific charge to use any of the spaces, but donations are welcome and will be used for activities encompassing all ages. Applications to use the rooms and spaces are available at the Circulation Desk. Get out and enjoy your local Library!

Lastly, it was mentioned in my previous column about a fish fry at St. Teresa Catholic Church on Friday, March 25. Unfortunately, that event had to be cancelled due to the church’s inability to acquire fish. Many organizations in the area have had to cancel fish fries due to the lack of available fish to purchase. Yet another supply-chain casualty, I guess. So head over to the VFW for dinner that night instead and enjoy chicken.
