Bringing Us All To A Place We Don’t Want To Lose
We publish an Ezine on Tuesdays & Fridays called The Maroon.
Maroons Online was created in 2021, year two of that dreary part of American History called the Covid-19 Pandemic.
Among our projects and causes, we are gathering a collection of Ridgewood Athletic Team Photos. We’ve downloaded some off the Internet but most still reside in Arrow Yearbooks. These are being kept in the Ridgewood Public Library and at RHS, and are not digitized and available online yet.
It’s hard to imagine wrestlers practicing bare-chested, or field hockey players without eye protection but that’s how these sports began. For a closer look at these curiosities and others like the once common phenomenon of male cheerleaders, visit the website we started in June 2022. It features a collection of our athletic teams’ history and is the Maroons Online companion website: Maroons History.
Our other collections include the cultural events which make up the fabric of our daily lives and give us a sense of common heritage. For instance, we are assembling pictures of our yearly Ridgewood High School Graduation ceremonies. We also honor the lives of graduates who are no longer with us by consolidating their names In Memory Of By Class.
Our next project beginning 2023 will complete the Maroons Trilogy. The third subject will focus on gathering & cataloging the Art, Music, Poetry, & Drama of RHS alumni. The working title is a Maroons Anthology.
