Griffins everywhere you look! All over the place, it appears they've invaded Sunny Cal once again!
That's the way it was Sunday evening at the Arnoldsburg Community Park, site of the annual reunion of the descendants of
and Millie Varney Griffin. They came from as near as Spencer and Burning Springs, and as far away as Manchester, Ohio and
Jeffersonville, Indiana. Maybe even farther. Young and old, short and tall, big and little, all those Griffins under one roof sat
down to a
fine covered dish dinner and reminisced about the good ol' days.
The annual gag gift exchange made for a lot of laughs as usual. Door prizes were presented to several folks in attendance.
Chambers (of Jeffersonville, Indiana) received one for traveling the farthest; Cecil and Chris Griffin were the newest
Truman for being the oldest; and Dalton Levi Griffin for being the youngest.
The crowd decided to go at it again next year.
