A reprise to warm hearts as the thaw ensues and spring officially hits the air …

Spring is officially here. The weather is warming up. Sort of. People are shedding coats for sweaters and getting out and about a little more each day.

The thaw has started. Call it classic spring fever. And it’s a more feverish fever than ever with the demise of COVID mask mandates and people pulling closer together again. Thoughts of sunny, warm, close spring-is-in-the-air antics are racing through minds, especially those of high schoolers. 

So, the Retro Pic of the (George) Day is dedicated to the good old days of catching a hint of spring fever at RFH.

These guys of the 1970s are hanging outside by what was the Junior Lounge at the high school and they’re looking a little restless, as RFH natives can get.

While we’re not certain, it certainly seems like they are a little antsy and looking to break out of the confines of the school, shed their coats and any inhibitions they actually have left and do the “happy days are here again” dance … or ride … ride into some spring fever-like antics.

There’s no telling what they were actually up to, but it looks like Ray Francis is warming up his car and they’re swinging from the trees.

Whatever it is that they were up to, they were off and springing into a good start, that’s for sure.

Know any of these guys and what they were actually up to? Give it a gander and a guess … 

Oh, and thanks, once again, to the fabulous George Day for this photographic gem!
