'Dueling ceremonies' familiar Memorial Day scenario in Calabash

-A A +A
By Laura Lewis, Reporter

Calabash has to be the most patriotic town in Brunswick County, if not North Carolina and the entire United States.

For the past decade, as best my not-so-baby (boomer) memory strains to serve me, I have covered Memorial Day ceremonIES in the Seafood Capital.

I stress the plural part because, as most Calabash Seafood Capitalists know by now, the town traditionally has two, even three, ceremonies paying tribute to our fallen heroes, veterans and active-duty service members alike.

This is an absolutely good thing.
