This is a classic that’s been seen before, but warrants another look, considering the timing …

The RFH junior prom was on Friday night. And the prom is all about dressing up, coupling up and dancing. Well, that’s most of what it’s all about, anyway. No teacher in RFH history loved to dance more than RFH science teacher of days gone by, George Giffin. He taught ballroom dance, he danced all over the place and he was even known to show up at many a student’s wedding and several reunions to make sure everyone remembered how it’s done on the dance floor.

There was even a George Giffin Memorial Dance-a-Thon in 2015 honoring the RFH legend.

So, what better Retro Pic of the Day in honor of prom time than a photo of RFH’s George Giffin dancing with his wife, former Knollwood English teacher, Marcia Giffin, at the RFH prom in the 1960s?

Take a look and click on the links for more info on the one and only Mr. Giffin.
