Football season has arrived with the fall season at RFH. And a real touchdown for football is always the cheerleading squad. 

There were the varsity and junior varsity squads. The look was very slightly different from one to the next, yet the sound and spirit was the same — from junior varsity to varsity, decades ago to now. 

High. Very high. So, we pay ode to those cheers and leaders of them, from then until now with a look at another squad of the 1970s.

A reprise from Oct. 1, 2015 to give a little cheer on a dank day. A little tricks and treating among RFH loungers. Always an adventure of some sort at RFH … 

There was nothing quite like becoming a senior at RFH and being able to hang out in a special lounge just for you and your classmates, especially on a dismal October day.

Nothing was getting anyone down if they were senior lounging in the cozy RFH indoors. Of course, there was always something seniors were up to. Call it mod. Literally.
