The Antioch Corn Boil is a fundraiser that was started in the early 1970s by R. L. Grogan to raise money for the volunteer fire department. The last one in 1997. After 13 years, the fundraiser is back to raise money for Camp Antioch. Organizers said they bought about 7,000 ears of corn, and by around 4 p.m. Saturday they had sold more than 4,000 ears.

Grogan started the Antioch Corn Boil in the early 1970s as a fundraiser for the volunteer fire department and that the last one was in 1997.
