Dozens of members at the United Church of Christ on Harding Way West in Galion gathered for the congregations annual corn roast.

The event started as a celebration just for the men, according to longtime church member Wilbur Shifley, but the women were invited to partake in the fun just a few years later. Shifley says he has attended 86 corn roasts at the church in his lifetime, and that the event began sometime in the 1920's, although nobody knows exactly when the inaugural event took place.

The celebration involves the men cooking corn in large kettles, then bringing them into the church's kitchen for the women to doctor up and serve. Once the congregation has their fill of corn, they move on to hotdogs before ending the evening with a doughnut for dessert.

Church reverend Katherine Beckett says the meal is a "carb overload," but adds that participants "have a lot of fun," and "build friendships and have a good time."
