In light of Sunday’s Rumson St. Patrick’s Day Parade, we are reprising this popular Retro Pic of the Day, originally posted on Feb. 28, 2022. There was an Irish Sweater Club marching with a host of mini sweater wearers on the parade route. But, back in the day …
Well, St. Patrick’s Day is looming. Considering the Irish festivities that have abounded lately in the spirit of the day, thoughts turn back to a club that took the chill out of the winter’s gala holiday — the RFH Irish Sweater Society of 1980.
It’s not every day that you ask for selfies of post-Rumson St. Patrick’s Day Parade fun and get one single solitary photo and it’s replete with a couple of former Fair Haven councilwomen.
Sad as that is, just add a Fair Haven Fire Department affiliation or two and a Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School Performing Arts Society parent and you get a good mix for a great time at Columbus Club’s Sunday St. Pat’s fete. Now that’s a recipe for Fair Haven fun. That’s the idea.
The two former councilwomen are, of course, Susan Sorensen and Jacquie Rice. We spy at least two fire company relations: Wendy Kane and former chief, Wade Davis. And the selfie-taker, well, that’s none other than RFH PAS parent extraordinaire, Joanne Formisano.
Now, who’s cut off here — in the pic, that is? The masks are dropped and close encounters are close once again. The parade passed by thousands and the Columbus Club party was packed, so we see and heard.
Now, how would you caption this official(ish) photo? The fun started on Sunday. Look out for more fun times among green attire and beer spied this week, for St. Pat’s sake! Yours? Send your best St. Pat’s inspired selfies to [email protected]
