It’s how the tradition goes … Fair Haven Firemen’s Fair time is old friends’ reunion time.
Fair Haven Republican Borough Council candidates Susan Sorensen and Betsy Koch cordially invited, as all invites go, Fair Havenites and all other interested parties to a meet-and-greet, getting-to-know-you gathering at The Raven and the Peach Thursday evening.
Sorensen, the incumbent, has served on various committees in her tenure, including starting the non-profit Foundation of Fair Haven, which is designed to offset costs for special events like Fair Haven Day and Oktoberfest.
This is a first run for political office for Koch. A longtime teacher at Knollwood School, she has said that she felt the timing was right for her to pitch in as a seated councilwoman in the hometown borough she loves and as a testament to the legacy of her husband Jerome, who served on council until his premature death a few years ago.

Aug. 25 was the 42nd anniversary of the release of Bruce Springsteen’s iconic Born to Run album.
The Boss, who until recent years made Rumson his primary home, has been a known fan of the Fair Haven Firemen’s Fair. He’s been seen countless times casually roaming the grounds — though more often when his kids were little.
