This week’s neighbor, Sam Ruszat, is a relative newcomer to Hayward, having moved here in late February with her boyfriend Nathan, who now manages Slumberland Furniture in Hayward. They came from Fargo, North Dakota, where they had lived for seven years. She said they loved Fargo but were excited for a new adventure together.
“We had never even heard of Hayward before moving here for his job,” said Sam. “We thought Hayward wouldn’t have much going on, being the population is a lot smaller than Fargo, but we are pleasantly surprised with all the awesome restaurants, lakes and outdoor activities and festivals the town has to offer.”
