Baseball season is upon us. We’ve seen the boys of RFH on the field and in the dugout. This may not be an official RFH game, by virtue of the lack of uniforms, but it’s all about the girls this time … and having fun playing the field … and a little ball.

Remembering RFH’s A.J. Bruder

This slideshow, memorializing RFH Class of ’78 alum A.J. Bruner, was originally run on April 15, 2015. April 15 marked the 22nd anniversary of A.J.’s untimely death. We are running it again, as we do annually, to pay tribute to A.J. and say, as A.J.’s class readies for its 40th reunion this summer, “You are missed. You are remembered.”

The popular class officer, athlete, writer, artist, singer-songwriter, friend to many, son, brother, cousin, and all-around great guy died of lung cancer at the young age of 36 on the day of the 100th Boston Marathon — April 15, 1996.

He is memorialized by many at the annual RFH A.J. Bruder Memorial  Run and is remembered daily by countless people whose lives he touched with his generous, contagious spirit.

Take a look at the A.J. of RFH days. Godspeed, A.J. Bruder. Thank you for enriching our lives!

 Many thanks to George Day for the photos of A.J.!

A reprise of a very popular Retro Pic of the (George) Day that pays homage to spring — RFH style … Now where were these RFHers? Word has it that they were far off campus … 

Spring has finally sprung. In fact it’s bloomin’ bouncing into seasonal warmth lately, save for a few bad days.

OK, so the spring weather outside has not been so consistently delightful lately.

So, take a look back to the 1970s when spring fever kicked in enough to get a couple of RFH guys in the mood to put those gloves on and take a little kangaroo hop outside the Junior Lounge, probably on a “free.” They were barely clad in those stylish 70s gym shorts and ready to duke it out — or at least dance around the notion.

A Mother’s Mission: Maddy’s Gift of Love

What’s a mother to do when the light of her life is extinguished? Dawn Tilton Massabni has been looking for an answer to that question for about a year now — since the day her dauntless, bright spirited 19-year-old daughter Maddy died unexpectedly from toxic shock syndrome on March 30, 2017 at 4:55 p.m.

That answer, or any other, has hardly come easily for the longtime Rumson mom and Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School (RFH) graduate who grew up in the area and raised her family there. But now she thinks she’s found a way to keep the light that she and so many knew as Maddy shining bright.

With all the talk about the relatively new RFH Surf Club and the surfing success of RFH’s Emily Grossarth, thoughts of the good ol’ days of cool surfing with RFH guys prompt a thumbs up for those bygone years, just like in the photo that so many have seen before.

Hey, it’s worth a little reprise, considering …
