GARRETT — It’s becoming a family tradition.
Garrett’s 2020 First Baby of the Year is simply following in the footsteps.
Lyndy Elizabeth Wilcoxson entered the world at 8:16 p.m. Jan. 9 at Parkview Regional Medical Center to parents Kyle and Bryanna Wilcoxson.
She weighed 6 pounds, 15 ounces and measured 17-3/4 inches long at birth.
Her uncle, Blake Wilcoxson, was the first baby born in Garrett in 1992.
Grandparents are Rick and Debi Jenkins and Tom and Laurie Wilcoxson.
As winners of the First Baby of the Year, the parents will receive gifts from several local merchants. This year’s sponsors include Garrett State Bank, JAM Center, Garrett Bowl, Miller’s Markets, Garrett Hardware and The Flower Pot.
