Farewell Mrs. Dexter, More Cravin' Haven, Reading Therapy Dog & Drumming

It's what's going on in the Rumson-Fair Haven area on Tuesday.

Happy Tuesday, R-FH area folks.

Many are saddened to hear of the death of Mrs. Dexter, a longtime Fair Havenite who was an aide in the RFH library back in the day (in the 70s). A good lady with a memorable smile, blue eyes and a sardonic wit that's hard to forget.

Rest in peace, Mrs. Dexter. Anyone who would like to send us photos and/or comment, please send an email to elaine.develde@patch.com so we can put something together in memory of her.

Cravin Haven is open and the food is flowing. Check out our story and stay tuned for some on-site photos of those wild sandwiches and fun in the first few days there.

Well, the weather forecast is looking more mild today temperature-wise, and there are a few things to do.
