Since 2003, this has been an annual, one evening, event that is a combined effort between the St John Chamber and the Schererville Rotary Club. It is held at the Community Outpatient Center (outdoors). It is planned by a small joint committee over several months prior to the event and requires many volunteers, as well as community business involvement. The corn is provided by local farmers & pre-cooked the day of the event at Comfort’s Catering, the many miscellaneous food and paper items are supplied by Strack & Van Til. Hotdogs are provided by 95ate5 restaurant and catering and the Polish Sausage is grilled by Welch’s Stop & Shop. Eenigenberg supplies bottled water. Proceeds are split between both organizations. The Chamber proceeds benefit the scholarship fund. It has been very well received by the community, offering food, socializing, live entertainment, children’s activities, as well as booths operated by local businesses and organizations.
