While Rumson-Fair Haven area folks know better than anyone that there’s nothing quite like a good locals’ summer, there are always great days on the beach in any season.
When you grow up nestled between the Shrewsbury and Navesink rivers and the ocean is a short ride, walk or run away, beaching it is never solely a seasonal jaunt. It’s a rite of passage, no matter what time of year.
Wow. So much has changed, yet stayed the same. The venue has gone from the RFH Borden Stadium to the front lawn to the Borden Stadium and the football field again to the RFH auditorium and mixed up and around over the years. Now it’s at the Monmouth University.
Well, the has been shining bright, signaling a true start to spring and a little spring fever on the ball field. No time like the present, or some 40 years ago, for an impromptu game in the sun when going out to play meant getting some exercise and hanging with your buddies.
And they were such a hit, we’ve conjured them up from the past to cheer on some good weather. We’re hoping they can summon a slam dunk in brighter, warmer days ahead with those good looks, great outfits and tons of RFH spirit (of the past).
So, the Retro Pic of the (George) Day, honors the “girls” from yet another vantage point on the court.
“Hey, purple! Hey, white!”
Nothin like a gaggle of good cheerleaders from the past to get those sunny day vibrations going — or at least crack a smile on a dank day.
Recognize these gals? How about some of the teachers in the background? I spy Dewey Robinson.
Thanks, once again, to the fabulous George Day, for this priceless pic of the RFH past!
It’s that kind of summer day when a little boat ride and escape to a deserted island, or one in the Shrewsbury River, makes for the perfect getaway not so far away — as long as there’s some mosquito netting.
Some moments are meant for just lounging … like this persistent foul weather. Yes, lounging, even if those snippets of indoor time at RFH are inside a far less cozy, yet exclusive, special high school nook like the junior, as opposed to upper crust senior, lounge.
