A classic reprise in honor of sunnier spring days and beach days ahead …

Helloooooo warmth. Spring is finally drying and warming up. And the weather forecast this week holds some promise of springing into sunnier days ahead, staged or not.

It’s all about writing what you know, as they say. So, since it’s Teacher Appreciation Week, we’re stepping back several decades to show some appreciation for RFH teachers we knew and some of their teaching moments, profound or not, that stuck with us.

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.

While Rumson-Fair Haven area folks know better than anyone that there’s nothing quite like a good locals’ summer, there are always great days on the beach in any season in this area.

When you grow up nestled between the Shrewsbury and Navesink rivers and the ocean is a short ride, walk or run away, beaching it is never solely a summer seasonal jaunt. It’s a rite of passage, no matter what time of year.

Retro RFH Batty Gym Suit Home Run

A reprise in honor of the girls, baseball season and not having to wear these horrific mandatory gym suits anymore! Strike! The suits are out! Phew! Remember the fun and the horror with us … (Be sure to CLICK on one photo to enlarge and scroll to fully experience the horror. Ha!)

It’s just plain batty! Batter’s up at RFH as baseball season is in full swing. But, looking back at some RFH 1970s games, you have to wonder when or why, exactly, there was ever a season of the ol’ gym suit, baseball or softball aside.

Really. Ponder it. Those things that made girls look like Stay Puff marshmallows, or, worse, a big baby with a onesie that had enough space for a diaper or, well … you get the picture.

Reprise! Just because … Let’s hear it for spring fever and waiting for the sun to reappear!

OK, so the spring weather outside has not been so consistently delightful lately. But, the sun has made some great cameo appearances.

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.

This baseball season at RFH promises to be a home run hit, as bases are loaded with near post-pandemic cheer and maskless play back on the field again. The season is officially in full swing and there’s a home game for the freshmen team today.

Retro RFH Pre-Prom Fun

A reprise originally posted in June of 2019 just because … it’s post-pandemic prom time …

Well, it’s Junior Prom time at RFH. We know that some prom traditions prevail. Others do not.

One thing’s for sure, though, and that’s the prom fact that all good prom-goers gather before they set out for their quality prom time.
