Welcome friends and fans!

Many of you know why this site was created, as you’ve known me and/or seen me around the towns for many years.

But, for those who do not, let me explain …

I have lived in the area and loved it all my life. There are so many stories to be told and so much news to be spread that has, of late, gone untapped. I saw the need and was consumed with a passion to fill that void for a place I have been fortunate enough to call home.

So, as a veteran journalist having served the area for decades, I decided to create Rumson-Fair Haven Retrospect.

All things local will be covered once again right here with dedication and drive unsurpassed. I’m thrilled to be back on the local scene and look forward to conveying the story of this little utopia we all call home.

As always, feel free to contact me with tips, tidbits and anything else on your minds. And, I’m happy to say, once again, “I’ll see you around the towns!”

With much love of quality news and all things local,

Elaine Van Develde
