There’s one in every class — a class clown. And when the days get chillier and students’ silly energies are pent up indoors, clowning around becomes an art form.
At RFH back in the 1970s, the art was taken to an extreme one fine, dull day. Not that we’re encouraging any antsy RFH students who may be a little bored and have the itch to engage in some mischievous antics …
There’s nothing like a little clowning around at RFH.
And, even though this photo from the 1970s was apparently taken around Halloween, by virtue of the telltale clown costume and soccer ball, it screams the stuff from which a little spring fever is made.
There’s a clown on the soccer field apparently trying to steal a goal and float away attached to his helium balloon. OK.
And the look on the soccer player’s face is priceless.
So, yes, the Retro Pic of the (George) Day is dedicated to springing into a little clowning around RFH style.
Know these clowns?

Thanks to George Day for this candid, fabulous look back in time at RFH!
