Retro RFH Rainy Day Lounging

Since rainy days and Tuesdays sometimes get you down, it’s the perfect time to look back again on some upbeat lazy days of lounging at RFH as a junior. So, we reprise this Retro Pic of the Day originally posted in 2018 on, you guessed it, a rainy day …

Out came the sun on Monday. Then came the dank, drizzly rain on Tuesday. Everyone feels it. Even high schoolers. And everyone knows that usually with that dreary weather comes a little bit of an antsy, lackadaisical mood — especially for students cooped up in a high school all day. Yes, when it rains, it tends to pour mischief in the high school halls. Call it a little shut-in sickness.

But, back in the day, there was a remedy for what ailed RFH students when lazy, hazy days drenched with dismal weather set in. That remedy was the artfully 70s-style painted brick-and-pillar Junior Lounge.

Retro RFH Presidential Spirit of ’76

Well, with Presidents Day kicking off the week, it seemed only appropriate to continue in that theme with retro RFH photos. We’ve been talking RFH class presidents.

Why not? If the day fits … And, lest we forget that back in the 1970s, there was a bicentennial for the U.S.A. going on. And there was much making of the year in the theme of RFH festivities and the yearbook.

The RFH Class of ’76, in fact, reprised its own ode to our first president, George Washington, with a mock crossing of, shall we say, McCarter Pond?

While the intent of Presidents Day was originally to commemorate the birthday of the first U.S. president, George Washington, it ended up being moved from Washington’s birthday of Feb. 22 to the third Monday of February as part of the Uniform Monday Holiday Act in 1971.

The purpose for that was twofold: to create a three-day weekend for federal and state employees (and sometimes municipal and private sector employees) and to celebrate all presidents.
