The motto of the city of Modesto is “The City of Great Neighbors” . Our family has been in Modesto since 1989. We moved to bigger city like San Jose for awhile. However, we appreciated and missed the quaint small town feel of Modesto. Modesto has been kind to us. Most of the people & the neighbors are nice and friendly. There is a movement called Love Modesto in April which grows in size & popularity every year. When we started ChalkWild, the community leaders and business leaders were supportive. We have decided to call Modesto home and want to name our pink (the color of universal love of oneself & others) backpack Modesto to show our pride of being a Modestan.
