Amity Students Flip At Graduation

Who is this Amity Grad?

The Amity High School Graduation was delightful. It was not too hot with a steady breeze. There were good class speakers, especially the extremely funny piece by Eric, the self-proclaimed most unqualified speaker. (Give me a couple of days to post the videos).

This year, there were fewer beach balls than ever before and I didn’t see one soap bubble rising from the grad seats.

Yet, there was some entertainment when the diplomas were handed out. As he approached the dignitaries from the right side of the field, one student did a perfect flip, received his diploma, then before the official photographer could take his picture, he flipped again and wowed the crowd.

A few minutes later a second classmate also showed his gymnastic skills after receiving his diploma.

From Baseball, Volleyball, Tennis, Theater, Science and more, the Class of 2017 is a very talented bunch.

We took more than 6,000 photos at graduation and it will take some time to edit all of them. They most likely will be available on Shutterfly or a similar service.

The 2016 Amity Commencement Ceremony will take place on the Football Field today at 4 p.m. It’s supposed to be hot, but not sweltering (I hope).

I wish all of the graduates good luck in their future endeavors.

The Other Thing

There is one very disturbing trend that we see every year around graduation week, and that is the THEFT of congratulatory balloons from the tri-town area.

Kids, remember, if you didn’t get any balloons of your own, you do not have the right to STEAL someone else’s.

In Orange, someone or a couple of people went around and cut the strings on bundles of balloons, at the expense of the family members who dished out $5 each for the gifts.

It is uncertain if the nasty culprits simply let the helium filled mylar balloons fly or if they took them for themselves. In either instance it is wrong. The loose balloons most likely will end up killing sea turtles or whales (so congratulations, genius).  And the sudden appearance of these grad balloons on your own mailbox several days after the deliveries were completed, earmark you as a selfish individual.

If the individual(s) is/are caught they could face charges of criminal mischief or sixth-degree larceny (depending on just how many balloons you stole) and won’t it be embarrassing to have THAT on your record when you go for a job interview? — It tells a LOT about your character.

It’s time to stop!
