The pattern resumes this spring with the expected arrival of OceanFirst Bank.

The shareholders of Rumson-Fair Haven Bank & Trust have spoken, and they apparently arent all that worried that hedge fund honcho George Hall is going to turn the their well-heeled area into a Pottersville.
Hall is the founder of investment firm Clinton Group, which has more than $2.5 billion in assets under management, according to its website. On May 11, he won his battle to remove William Barrett as chairman of of the five-branch bank after an independent judge finalized the results of the banks annual shareholder vote. Hall is replacing Barrett on the board, and a new chairman is set to be chosen when the banks directors meet on Monday.
While the area is undoubtedly a far cry from Bedford Falls, the fictional setting of the classic movie “Its a Wonderful Life,” Barrett had reportedly likened Hall to Henry Potter, the films villain, amid criticism by Hall that the bank wasnt doing enough local lending.
Red Bank’s National Night Out celebration, a sun-soaked evening held in the borough hall parking lot, featured many fixings of a community coming together: a walk around town, tours of the police station, games, a handshake with a cop or two and char-grilled burgers.
Cops did it all Tuesday night. They flipped burgers, ran fingerprints, put the “drunk goggles” on golf cart-drivers and monitored the speed of young flamethrowers tossing a baseball.

A Red Bank man admitted in federal court in Trenton Monday that he robbed a Fair Haven bank last August and another one a week later in Cranford.
Wilfred A. Dunn Jr., no address given, faces up to 20 years for each robbery, according to documents filed in connection with the plea.
According to an FBI agent’s statement in court records, Dunn entered a TD Bank branch on River Road in Fair Haven last August 20 and passed a teller a note that said, “I have a loaded gun in my bag. Just give me the money and nobody gets hurt. 20s, 50s and 100s.”
