After a Memorial Day with no construction, Rumson-Sea Bright Bridge replacement continues Tuesday through Thursday during the usual 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. hours and a cut 3:30 p.m. on Friday and one major development in bridge traversing. The sidewalk across the bridge has been reopened.
Monmouth County officials’ travel advisory for users of the bridge roadway, sidewalk and waterway is as follows …
Yes, they were all dressed up with a couple of places to go — a pre-prom party and the actual Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School (RFH) Senior Prom.
The proms of these days are not your ’60s, ’70s, ’80s or ’90s proms. And that makes sense, of course. These days, the pre-prom party is a show of its own. All the prom goers, with or without dates, and their families go to a host’s house to get their prom on sans any alcohol before the main event. The prom goers are even breathalyzed to ensure a safe, fun night.
This year the pre-prom party was at a home on Rumson Road. And, from what we hear and the looks of things, a banner time was had by all. Why not? All the elements of a good gathering were there: the place, the people, the mood and, of course, the fashion.
Speaking of fashion … The guys’ dress is a whole event unto itself this era. These days they sport anything from pretty formal to smart casual and pretty preppie shorts and dress sneakers, if there is such a thing — and there is. Gone are the days of polyester pastel tuxedoes with frilly shirts. Thank the fashion gods. Though, these guys sported an awful lot of preppie pastels. Very sharp and fitting for each boy’s personal taste and personality.
The girls? Well, they were fashionably gowned out and coiffed. Looks like long has remained fashion forward. In fact, it looks like red carpet time for these girls.
It’s been rolled out and rolled up. The party’s over, but the freeze frames remain. Until next year … Prom party on!

Monday marks an official post-pandemic return to Memorial Day in the Rumson-Fair Haven area of the traditional kind. The day, usually kicked off by parades in Rumson and Fair Haven and solemn services at Victory and Memorial parks, respectively, brings people in communities together. Groups, standing shoulder-to-shoulder, honoring those who sacrificed their lives in service to the country, is the usual visual.
It’s field day time in Fair Haven schools! A reprise in honor of a traditional prequel to summertime for Fair Haven kids …
Once upon a time, in those school days right before summer, when Knollwood School kids gathered on Sportsman’s Field for, well, some Field Day fun, let’s just say it was a bit hard to keep them focused.
The Rumson-Sea Bright Bridge replacement work continues through Thursday this week during the latest usual hours of 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., weather permitting, with added area road pothole repair on Monday.

I must have known her, he thought, oozing mom pride. “You may remember my mom,” he said. “She was a bigger lady with glasses always walking around town … When I show you pictures of her you will recognize her.”
