Seeking Newtown’s First Baby Of 2020
The Newtown Bee is looking for the first child born to Newtown parents this year. This will continue a tradition now in its 59th year.
The First Baby of Newtown 2020 will win for their family everything from baked goods and champagne to savings bonds, multiple dining opportunities, and even automotive services, all courtesy of local businesses
The winning parents will be the ones who send the earliest birthdate (and time, if necessary, to break a tie) to The Newtown Bee by noon Tuesday, January 7. Parents must be Newtown/Sandy Hook residents and will need to submit the exact time and date of the child’s birth; their name and address; and the place of birth, gender, weight, and name of the newborn.
Friends, family, and neighbors of newborns, you can help too: Make sure the parents of any Newtown newborns know about this honorary title and all the prizes that come with it.
Parents and friends should contact Newtown Bee Associate Editor Shannon Hicks at 203-426-3141 or firstname.lastname@example.org with this information. The winners will be notified the evening of January 7 and will hopefully be available for an interview in time for the January 10, 2020, issue of The Newtown Bee.
Zoe Boros of Newtown was the latest baby to win the honorary title. Newtown’s First Baby of 2019 was the second child of Monica and Brett Boros. Zoe joined an older sister when she arrived in the world on January 5, 2019.
