I went to Carden Country Day School - the school changed its name and went to Yorba Linda, and the old building currently houses and Dentist's office and a furniture store. It's across the street from the Target on Placentia Ave.

I never lived in Fullerton, but I did take a couple of classes at Fullerton College, and spent some of the best years of my life (while working at DL) at Cal State Fullerton (If only they had something like a Starbucks at the corner of State College and Chapman in those days!)
One of my life-long pals still owns a rubber stamp business on Commonwealth, between Brookhust and Euclid near where the big Hunt-Wesson plant (I think) used to be. Back in the day when the weather was warm it smelled like stewed tomatoes.
And lately he's been part of a group working to save the historic Fox Theater on Harbor Blvd downtown.
So I never attended Raymond, but I know a thing or two about Fullerton.
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
I was born in Fullerton at St. Jude Hospital. My family and I lived in Fullerton(1973-75), then La Mirada(1975-77), then Buena Park(1977-79), then La Mirada (1978-81), then Fullerton on Commonwealth across the street from the municipal airport(1981-1984). I went to Valencia Park School during second grade, then went to Pacific Drive School (Still don't know where that place used to be) for third and part of fourth.
