Dance card and ticket from the 1944 Hopedale High School Junior Prom.
I don't know what prom tickets cost now, but I'm pretty sure it's more than $1.20. That was a pretty steep tax, though. Maybe it had something to do with the war. Evidently the names printed on the card, Carl Carlson, "Bob" McCully, etc., were the class members who had left to go into the service.
Thanks to Dave Lowell for donating the card to the Little Red Shop Museum.
