One of biggest bonuses in being part of the RFH community, in my eyes, is witnessing the traditions — old and new.
From Dawg sports to the annual parades in town, I can't help but to get that "Mayberry" feel when reflecting on this area and the reasons to which we live here. In a world full of so much "unknown", it's so nice be a part of stability and "more of the same" when it comes to the pride and history here in such cool towns — Rumson and Fair Haven.
Being part of the Val's Tavern family has come with many perks, especially watching over the years the families that come in for pizza with their ball players or "about to launch" almost college freshman. In a way, you feel like you are part of something bigger — like we are more than a community, but one big family. Although rare, we are so fortunate to have this (and more!) here in this beautiful, two river community.
It was a proud weekend here in RFH as we witnessed the arrival of Connor Jaeger, local Olympian and hometown hero and the arrival of the RFH football season with the kick off for the RFH Touchdown Club BBQ with the arrival of (who knows?) maybe another superstar athlete.
And, with the Firemen's Fair getting set up at Fair Haven firehouse, hope and tradition but most of all, spirit, was in the air (and soon to be funnel cake!) this week and we loved it.
How lucky are we?
Thank you to everyone who has made this area what it is today. We are proud to be a staple in this community for almost 80 years and will do our best to continue to bring that hometown feel to Val's. But most of all, we look forward to seeing new traditions blossom as we get set for a new fall season.
We would like to wish the best of luck to all of the teams participating in the fall sports and to the upcoming RFH freshman as well as the new students in all the schools — Dean Porter, Forrestdale, Holy Cross, Rumson Country Day, Knollwood and Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School.
And one more thing ... GO DAWGS! (And a big "Go Get 'Em" to the RFH Football Team on another winning season!)
Most of all, enjoy the rest of your summer!
From all of your friends at Val's Tavern
