Rudy Alf sons Like to Camp and Fish Times Herald, Carroll, la. Monday, April 15, 1974 10 The move from Sioux Falls, S.D., to Carroll last September brought many changes for the Rudy Alfson family. Alfson, a salesman for John Morrell Meats, was transferred here then. "1 really feel like we're settled now," Mrs. Jan Alfson said. Several months were needed to adjust to the new environment, she added. The smaller size of Carroll took some getting used to especially in shopping. As for entertainment, Mrs. Alfson believes people can easily provide their own. In the five years the couple have been married, they now own their first home, at 1120 Highridge Road. They enjoy adding finishing touches to it. With spring approaching, the Alfsons are considering planting trees or shrubs. Comparing Sioux Falls and Carroll, Mrs. Alson remarked, "People are friendlier here. Thtly're more interested in you. Everyone has been really nictttous." T'he couple's 3-year-old daughter Darci has a few friclnds near her age in the neighborhood and often meets youngsters that accompany thftir mothers to the Alfson home. Several of these women are members of Welcome Wagon and Newcomers Club, two groups Mrs. Alfson has joined. Favorite family activities are camping and fishing. Already this year, they have made several trips to Swan Lake State Park. Mrs. Alfson said they would like to visit some Iowa camps this summer. Light entertaining and reading occupy some of Mrs. Alfson's time. She also make decorative wooden ornaments for gifts. The wood is stained and artificial flowers or pictures pasted on the surface. "There're a lot of things I'd like to do, but I'm just going to raise my family now and do the things I have to do. I'm very satisfied," she said.
