Corn Roast

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.
