With all the talk about the relatively new RFH Surf Club and the surfing success of RFH’s Emily Grossarth, thoughts of the good ol’ days of cool surfing with RFH guys prompt a thumbs up for those bygone years, just like in the photo that so many have seen before.
Well, with all the excitement of the Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School (RFH) Tower Players’ opening night of Secret Garden coming up on Friday, it seemed only right that we should offer a look back at the Tower Players of 1977.
Yes, winter is still here; and just when the sun shines we are soon reminded of the season with a spate of nor’easter threats and promises and dustings of snow.
With the white stuff in a flurry around the Rumon-Fair Haven area, our minds might be transported in time to RFH days when there was a small group of enthusiasts that loved the snow and took to the slopes regularly — the now defunct RFH Ski Club.
These Retro Pics of the Day (contributed by Gregg Kennedy) were originally run on March 11, 2016, honoring RFH grad Keith McHeffey shortly before the fundraiser run dedicated to his memory. Here they are again, the day before the run, which is slated for Saturday at 11 a.m. in Sea Bright. RIP, Keith McHeffey. You are remembered …
The KDM Fun Run & Walk, honoring RFH grad Keith McHeffey, is set for Saturday.
Keith, an avid athlete and good friend to many in the area, was a victim of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City on 9/11.
His friends created the KDM Foundation in 2002 to keep the former Rumson and Fair Haven resident’s memory alive and fund several charitable causes in his name.
Since then, the Fun Run has been known as the annual living memorial tribute to Keith in a setting truest to his nature.
So, the Retro Pic(s) of the Day take a look back at Keith McHeffey in his RFH heyday hanging out with his best buds.

There was a lot of cheering, a little dancing on the court, and prideful chatter on social media on Monday night when Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School Boys Basketball won its second consecutive state championship.
