Baseball season is upon us. We’ve seen the boys of RFH on the field and in the dugout. This may not be an official RFH game, by virtue of the lack of uniforms, but it’s all about the girls this time … and having fun playing the field … and a little ball.
This slideshow, memorializing RFH Class of ’78 alum A.J. Bruner, was originally run on April 15, 2015. April 15 marked the 22nd anniversary of A.J.’s untimely death. We are running it again, as we do annually, to pay tribute to A.J. and say, as A.J.’s class readies for its 40th reunion this summer, “You are missed. You are remembered.”
The popular class officer, athlete, writer, artist, singer-songwriter, friend to many, son, brother, cousin, and all-around great guy died of lung cancer at the young age of 36 on the day of the 100th Boston Marathon — April 15, 1996.
He is memorialized by many at the annual RFH A.J. Bruder Memorial Run and is remembered daily by countless people whose lives he touched with his generous, contagious spirit.
Take a look at the A.J. of RFH days. Godspeed, A.J. Bruder. Thank you for enriching our lives!
Many thanks to George Day for the photos of A.J.!
A reprise of a very popular Retro Pic of the (George) Day that pays homage to spring — RFH style … Now where were these RFHers? Word has it that they were far off campus …
Spring has finally sprung. In fact it’s bloomin’ bouncing into seasonal warmth lately, save for a few bad days.
Finally! The warmth of spring is in full bloom. And there’s nothing like parking yourself on a sunny spot on the grass and read a book or study — or something like that.
Yes, spring fever is spreading rapidly as we all anxiously await some sunshine, and blooming of warmer days. Apparently, this retro RFH spring frolicking in the high school parking lot was about more than a little spring fever in the 1970s.
OK, so the spring weather outside has not been so consistently delightful lately.
So, take a look back to the 1970s when spring fever kicked in enough to get a couple of RFH guys in the mood to put those gloves on and take a little kangaroo hop outside the Junior Lounge, probably on a “free.” They were barely clad in those stylish 70s gym shorts and ready to duke it out — or at least dance around the notion.
Hackensack Meridian Health Riverview Medical Center Foundation has announced a $5 million donation from Joan and Robert Rechnitz, founders of the Two River Theater Company, to support the advancement of the robotic surgery program at the Riverview Medical Center in Red Bank.
While baseball season at RFH started earlier in the month, today marked the start of Major League Baseball season.
She said she wanted to read something in tribute to her little girl on what would have been her 20th birthday. She said she was sure it would make her cry. Then something happened.
