BROACH COASTAL OBSERVER O VER THE LAST FEW WEEKS, Sally Swineford and Susan Sanders have spent a lot of time explaining the details of the S.C. Maritime Museum’s newest fundraiser. It’s called the Burning of the Socks and, while it’s popular in other areas of the country, it’s a first in Georgetown County and has raised more than a few eyebrows. “Everybody wants to know ‘why are you burn- ing your socks?’ So we have to keep going through that story,” said Swineford, a museum board member and volunteer. Sanders is the museum’s director. Luckily for them, there is a good story behind the Burning of the Socks, a celebration of the spring equinox, which in the case of the museum event, will also feature an oyster roast and live music by John Lammonds. The event is Sunday from 4 to 7 p.m. on the waterfront behind the museum. Advance tickets are $35 ($30 for museum members). The price goes up to $40 on the day of the event. The Burning of the Socks is a coastal tradition that has its roots in Annapolis, Md., with a boat yard manager named Bob Turner. “He had been working on other people’s boats SEE “SOCKS,” PAGE 16 Save the dates Surf-Skate Expo & Fish Taco Cook-off Coastal BrewFest Woofstock Primero de Mayo March 25 April 27 April 28 May 1 STORIES, PAGE 16 Photo illustration by Tanya Ackerman/Coastal Observer
