You’ve seen them before … this crew of daring, not so diabolical RFH guys who had a little skateboarding club. Call these views the triple threats.
Football season is winding up — or down — at RFH.
But it wasn’t always just about football at game time back in the day — as if that wasn’t enough. As tradition had it, there were always lots of things happening before, during and after games, whether on the field, off the field, around the bend or, well, in the parking lot. Yes, the parking lot.
Their faces are the faces at the core of a close-knit community.
They were neighbors, dads, and just plain friendly faces around the Rumson-Fair Haven area towns. They were also veterans.
Sunday is the day for honoring veterans — the 11th month, 11th day, 11th hour. That’s how the tradition goes.
Well, the soggy state of the area lately has been drying up and making way for some falling for fall activity — or not falling. In the last Retro Pic of the Day, we offered a glimpse back into RFH skateboarders doing some impressive balancing acts on the boards on an area street. Yes, it was Sycamore.
Turns out it was a weekly (or more) occurrence at the hands and boards of a few RFH pals.
It’s fall. So, it’s apropos to fall back in time with a couple of RFH guys and their skateboarding antics.
The spirit of Halloween has officially swooped in on us like a wicked witch on a fired-up broomstick!
So, the Retro Pic of the (George) Day is, well, several pics in a slideshow of none other than the happy tricksters and treaters of RFH’s Class of ’78!
So, here’s to the retro spirit of haunting from a classic RFH gaggle of ghouls!
And, thanks to the fabulous George Day for these spectacular shots!
It’s beginning to look a lot like Halloween. That’s because it is.
So, everywhere in the Rumson-Fair Haven area there are reminders of the spooky season. Over the years, people have outdone decorations of the past and, in some cases, never managed to measure up to those unforgettable houses many of us visited as a kid.
So, to set the mood for the day, take a look back at some the finest Rumson-Fair Haven Halloween sightings. Your favorite? What tops these haunts? Your house? Send us a photo, if you dare!
Happy Halloween! (And don’t forget to click to enlarge and scroll!)

It was six years ago when people piled onto the Sea Bright municipal parking lot to get and give help in the wake of Superstorm Sandy.
It was the year that Halloween wasn’t. It was 2012 and Superstorm Sandy had pummeled the Jersey Shore. It decimated Sea Bright and destroyed low lying parts of Rumson. Fair Haven was a bit war torn and powerless.
It’s not every day that you get the chance to grab a bite of good ol’ RFH cafeteria grub — or a little Halloween sustenance, let’s say.
It’s also not every day that you get the chance to “cop a squat” in the RFH senior lounge to ingest the spirit, or spirits, of the day in the company of Harpo and Groucho Marx.
Well, it looks like even though the weather is going to vacillate from good to bad to good again, it may just cooperate with the weekend’s events in the Rumson-Fair Haven area.
