In this photograph, taken May 31, 1975, first daughter Susan Ford enjoys a glass of punch while celebrating her senior prom with date William Pifer, classmates from the Holton-Arms School, and their dates. The prom for the 1975 graduating class of the Holton-Arms School of Bethesda, Maryland was held predominately in the East Room. It was the first prom held in the White House. Students covered the cost with funds they had raised since seventh grade. Punch and hors d'oeuvres, including miniature quiche lorraine, pigs-in-a-blanket, swedish meatballs, and sweet and sour chicken, were prepared by White House staff and served in the State Dining Room. The punch was made from tea, lemonade, white grape juice, club soda, and sugar.
