During Whittier School's class of 1969 reunion, Charlotte Csakai Mesimore led attendees in a song she had adapted to the tune of Paul McCartney's "Yesterday". The song honored teachers, and those in attendance.
Whittier, 700 block on North Harvey
Between Augusta and Thomas Street
Oh, we all went to Whittier
Gillogly, Social Studies always was a blast
Connecting future, present, and the past
Politics and Viet Nam
Mrs. Mitchell, Henderson, Higgins, WIlcox, Smith
Mr. Sheehan did you ever think
We'd meet again like this?
Slavin, we could always make you laugh out loud
And of our poetry you were so proud
Oh, metaphors and similes
Baughman, you said "Hoye chica ven aca
Quien esta ausente cocina
O calle tu la boca
Butcher, double breasted suits and bell bottoms
We thought you looked just like George Harrison
"And that has made all the difference"
Whittier, we all graduated from that school
1969 was groovy cool
Oh we remember Whittier...
