No matter the religious belief, Easter and spring both signify rebirth. And there are many festive traditions and celebrations surrounding it all.

There’s a new undersheriff in the county and it wasn’t that long ago when he was the Fair Haven police chief.
Darryl Breckenridge, a near-lifetime Fair Havenite, was sworn in by Monmouth County Sheriff Shaun Golden as the officer who runs the law enforcement division of the Sheriff’s Office, the largest agency of its kind in the county.
Most recently, Breckenridge served as the director of the Monmouth County Police Academy. He held the position for three years following his retirement from the Fair Haven Police Department, where he served for decades.
As director of the Police Academy, Sheriff Golden said in a post that “under his leadership and the hard work of staff attained national accreditation in police training.”

In Fair Haven, officials call it the quickest event of the year, usually lasting a mad rush few minutes, if not seconds. In Rumson, the hunts have lasted a bit longer, with age groups and the Victory Park scenario. Yet, there’s usually always a few stumbles and tears when grasping for that prized egg. In Sea Bright, kids are beached with a hunt.
