This year 2018 will mark the 79th year that this has been an annual event for the Rock Falls Rotary Club.  The original Rock Falls Rotary Club Corn Boil was an activity for the club members and their families which expanded over the years into what has become the major fundraising event for the club.  Wilson and Lorraine King were the original hosts to this event on their farm south of Rock Falls.  This event has grown into a community event with over 1500 meals being served.  Proceeds from this annual event will benefit the many community projects and youth support of the Rock Falls Rotary.  The public is invited.
