It’s from October 8, 1976 – 40 years ago! Hard to believe it’s been that long.
The art on these programs (which were undoubtedly used by many high schools) is quite nice. This painting is signed by Rick MacDonald, yet another unsung artist who probably churned these out regularly.
Inside the program are the usual typeset ads for local companies, but also some distinctive artwork and logos of many businesses and organizations that you might remember.
Here’s an ample sample of these ads.

and has been run by Alan and Debbie McCartney since 2001
|Type in ‘Kucirek’ in my blog’s search box and it will bring up |
quite a few posts about the Kucirek family’s businesses.
|It’s our old pal Forest City Max again, a reccurring topic on this blog!|
|I took this bus to work in Cleveland a few times when I lived|
at the Lorain Overlook. It went right by the apartment on Route 6.
|My family never really bought into the name "Kenny King’s."|
It was always, “How about some Colonel Sanders tonight?"
|I always think of a circus when I see this logo.|
|My parents bought a lot of Cutlasses from Milad’s.|
|As you can see, Edwards has one of those repurposed Canada Dry signs that I wrote about here.|
