Where is home to you?
Not where you live, necessarily. Home is where the heart is, so where is your heart? It's the place that has most meaning to you, even if you only lived there 65 years ago.


Please name 1. Just 1, please. OK? 1.

If you’d rather not sign your name, please answer anyway and use your initials and class.

Mount Ayr, Iowa will always be my home. I left there in June of 1959 and started SHHS in August 1959. Although I love Fullerton, Mount Ayr will always have my heart. I would not be the person I am today if I had not lived and left Mount Ayr. I will always carry a bit of Southern Iowa with me as Patty Trout's mother said upon meeting me that I had a "twang to my speech and perhaps I should have my adenoids removed". I have lived in Chicago and Loved my first "Big Girl Job" at the First National Bank of Chicago. I moved to Cedar Rapids, Iowa in 1972 where I have lived for 60 + years. It is a delight to return to Mt Ayr where everyone you meet either knows you, your parents or your grandparents. Thank all of you for being part of my memories. Lolly

I echo Don Martin's beautiful (paraphrased) sentiment. It's Fullerton.

I agree, home is where the heart is. It's the place that offers a ready smile, a hug, and a kiss when I come in or return home. For me it's not the place but the person. Home for me is wherever my wife is.

Cloverdale, CA.. Livin' on a vineyard abundant with wildlife. Been here 20 years now. I'm sure this will be it for me and I couldn't be any happier.

Santa Fe, New Mexico, closely followed by Fullerton.

Maybe I will be blessed to put together while I am still alive a life shared between these two places.

The presence of serious art activity and the ability to travel there by train seal the deal for me....

Home is right where I'm at... San Diego, CA. Moving here back in 1979 was easily one of the best decisions I ever made. It was a chancy move but we bonded almost instantly. I grew up in Fullerton, yes, but I give it very little thought these days.

Although La Quinta is home, I always think of Fullerton in terms expressed by Sherwood Anderson in his novel, Winesburg, Ohio. He states, “Winesburg will be the palette upon which your life will be painted”. (Paraphrased from memory). That’s what Fullerton is to me!

Certainly during my ‘formative years’ [??]. Fullerton was my home and it was then what I think of as Paradise.
In time, I grew up and moved on from Fullerton. I am now fortunate to enjoy several true ‘homes’ which are Salt Lake City, Utah, the Rocky Mountains and San Miguel de Allende, Central Mexico.

Fullerton, California. Always. No matter where I go, or where I've lived, Fullerton has remained home, the place with most meaning for me, and most of my affection. My people are Fullerton people, you might say,
