At one hall way at the far end on there was a curtain stretched across the hall shielding the person behind the curtain. This was the place where you could fish for a prize. For one ticket, you were given a pole with a piece of twine attached and at the end was a clothes pin. The PTA mother would collect the ticket and help throw the twine over the curtain. Soon you would feel a tug, because you had caught a prize. The prizes were cheap rings, bracelets, small cars and airplanes, depending on who was fishing.
