Weighing eight pounds and fifteen ounces, La Verendrye General Hospital’s first baby of 2020 and the new decade has arrived.

Welcome to the world William James Gerber.

Proud parents Micha and Tina Gerber of Alberton greeted their first child at 2:30 a.m. on Jan. 8.

“Thank you to Dr. Jenks and all the nurses who did a fantastic job,” the new parents stated. They also expressed their gratitude to local business and organizations for generous gifts. This year gifts were provided by Curvy Chick, Kenton Creations, Cabin Country Quilt Guild and Pharmasave.
