All the bills have been paid, the seed money for the 2012 event is banked, and the committee is pleased to share the proceeds with local organizations.

The Sugar Grove Corn Boil Committee is proud to be able to give back $13,700 into the community after a successful event this summer. On Oct. 18, 2012, Corn Boil President Jean Lindsey presented the donations to a variety of community organizations. The Corn Boil meeting and presentation ceremony was held at the Sugar Grove Senior Center on Snow Street in Sugar Grove.

This year, we’re pleased to recognize and present a financial donation to the following organizations: Between Friends Food Pantry Big Rock Park District, Calvary West Church, Clown Ministry, Elburn Boy Scouts Troop No. 7, John Shields Elementary School, Kane County Sheriff’s Office, Kaneland Drum Core, Kaneland First Responders, St. Katharine Drexel Church, Sugar Grove American Legion No. 127, Sugar Grove Community House, Sugar Grove Historical Society, Sugar Grove Lion Club Fireworks, Sugar Grove Park District, Sugar Grove Township Senior Center, Sugar Grove United Methodist Church, Sugar Grove Veteran’s Park, Village Bible Church of Sugar Grove and West Town Human Services Network.

The next Sugar Grove Corn Boil will mark the 46th anniversary of this annual event. Please support your community by helping to plan this special event in 2013. Beginning in January, the Sugar Grove Corn Boil meetings will be held the third Thursday of every month. The Corn Boil is a volunteer-run community event, featuring three family-friendly and fun-filled days.
