Commodore Young's Corn Roast
Perigene Cabin, Susquehanna River, 26 August 2002
York-Adams Area Squadron Commodore Don Young and his brother
Perry have for many years held an annual corn roast on the last Monday in
August at their Perigene Cabin on the Susquehanna River near Long Level, PA
and graciously invited the Squadron's Sea Scouts. The affair is a nice
time for our Sea Scouts to get together and swim, sail, water ski, tube,
swap tall tales, and enjoy the Young family specialty of corn slow-roasted
over an open fire. This year's attendees from Ship 25 were Bo'sun Tim,
Yeoman Amanda, Purser Leah, Bo'sun Emeritus Adam, Drew, prospective member
John, and Cabin Boy Andy, plus the Skipper and Mate Mrs. K.
John and Drew enjoy a fast tube ride.
Cabin Boy Andy continues his fascination with all things aquatic.
Roasted corn - a special treat once enjoyed by the Susquehannock Indians of
Tim, Drew, John, and Leah ham it up for your roving Sea Scout Action News
Water-skiing just before sunset on the River.
Drew takes over the controls of a fast inboard-outboard drive runabout.
Leah and John wonder if Drew knows what he's doing. The answer is
John gives water skiing a try for the first time in his life - he got up on
the 5th try! Definitely Sea Scout material.
John says he owed his good performance to his lucky "Jeep"
hat. Definitely a happy camper.
