Retro Stoked Fair Haven Boys

Some sixth grade Fair Haven boys at Stokes

Well, one old time Fair Haven, now Rumson, guy had a birthday recently.

And, on his birthday, a photo popped up on Facebook of him and a few others at the traditional annual sixth grade trip to Stokes State Forrest.

These four boys pictured had obviously spied something quite interesting in the woods at Stokes when they were there back in the early 1970s.

Do you know which was the birthday boy and is still living in the area? He actually went to Stokes twice — once as a camper and once as a RFH senior counselor, otherwise known as a CAT.

Remember the CATs? They are no more, but you had to get hand picked to be one and this group of 1978 CATs was quite the motley crew. Who are the other boys in the pic? And, really, what the heck were they looking at? Jersey Devil?
