    Mike Lustig, a founding John Dewey High School Teacher:

    In doing research for my 60's course, the exciting idea of doing a Hippie Wedding as a culminating class activity popped up. Students did research, the concept of what a HW might be like, and how it embodied the values of the 60's was explored. The band would pick songs, dancers would choreograph in honor of the bride and groom,( who would write their own vows). Student poets would dedicate their work, as well as gurus who would

    comment on the issues of the day(war, the Military-Industrial Complex, drugs, sex, Rock and Roll,etc).

    Group singing of the best folk songs of the 60's was also a prominent part of the HW. Tie dying on campus the two or so weeks before the Hippie Wedding generated interest. What started with maybe fifty people attending in 1981 mushroomed to three or four hundred in the 2000's. The HW became the symbolic end of the year event from about 1984-2005.
