“STATEN ISLAND ADVANCE
Generating boos and red faces, a speaker from an American Legion post lashed out at parents for how they were dressed yesterday during a fifth-grade graduation ceremony at PS 8 in Great Kills.
After presenting two students with awards for patriotism and citizenship, Harry Krone of the Watkins-Kellett Post said, "This is a special day for your children. This isn't a bowling alley or a supermarket."
Krone, a past county commander with the American Legion, was unable to finish his address because of the audience response.
The outfits worn by the audience on the first full day of summer ranged from suits and dresses to shorts, T-shirts and flip-flops.
"Maybe if there was some air conditioning in here some people might dress more appropriately," said Janet Rosario of Clifton, who had to stand for the entire two-hour ceremony.
"Why should we be dressed in ball gowns?" asked Rosemarie Cillo, who came from Brooklyn to see her granddaughter graduate. Mrs. Cillo said she resented Krone's assailing them as if they were dressed like "bums."
“The guy's a control freak.”
“fifth-grade graduation ???????
What the heck is this? Jethro graduating on The Bev. Hillbilly's?
Maybe if it was a real graduation people would take it more seriously.”

“As a bowler and supermarket shopper, I'm offended!”
You mean this was inappropriate?
“Why, I had no idea! I mean, it was hot in there or I would have covered my loin cloth and not let george Clinton in!
“Yeah, too bad all the family members showed up to support their kids.
Maybe he was one of those old farts who still pines for the good old days of Fedoras and suits.”
No wonder you dressed like a little red X, ....LOL”
“I wear jeans/shorts everywhere!
Suits ONLY for Weddings, Deaths and traffic tickets.”
“Nice picture Treebeard, you've really lost some weight!”
“Here Treebeard, allow me...was this it?
“Uh, not quite!”
“Do the Hustle”
“Tree that photo is just wrong.”
“Funkify yo'self, Zac!”
“Then we can call you Zacadelic!”
“There's no pocket for his mojo!”
“The Mothership is Lifting Off!”
