For five years now, two venerable institutions of the Green, Prown’s Home Improvement and Dorn’s Classic Images have been putting their heads together to create a calendar that keeps the past alive and helps out a charity or two.
The 2014 edition continues the tradition and includes 14 classic black-and-white photos of Red Bank kids. The images were selected from the Dorn’s collection, curated by George and Kathy Dorn Severini.
