Our buddy Matt Griffin is graduating from high school tomorrow. Seems that we have known him almost his whole life. He started out as the little kid portraying the black Seminoles at Dade Battlefield, and is now a grown man. It went by so fast. He is articulate and can ride the horses at the reenactments like few others can.
Matt back when he was about 14 years old, and in the Orlando Sentinel!
He was already doing school programs back then. And has always had a great outfit.
I wish I could be at his graduation, but have to work the next day and can't make the long, round-trip drive. I thought I was off, but was mistaken.
Darn it all, but I know several of his friends from the reenactment will be there at Matt's graduation. And no telling what that group has in store for Matt!
YAY MATT!!!! i can still remember when he came walking into our camp with his big old western hat and asked if he could sit in our camp and learn from us, how could he get involved? he has done all of us proud, going on to give quality programs and become quite the presenter in his own right! i'm still not sure if we will be able to go or not, but i'm hoping to - somebody has to blow the conch shell for him!
