Young Hospital Auxiliary has continued its generous tradition of presenting a gift to the parents of the first baby born each year at Young Hospital.

Alice and Rick Matiske welcomed baby Fleur to the world on January 8.

"We are very excited about all births in the hospital, but there was something especially nice about the first baby born this year to welcome 2021," Auxiliary president Janice Ward said.

The hospital delivered 118 babies in 2020.
