On Wednesday, January 3rd at 3:01am, Weiser Memorial Hospital welcomed the first baby of the new year. Alyssa Briggs gave birth to a beautiful healthy baby boy. Preston Lane Briggs came into the world at eight pounds two ounces and  twenty-one inches long. Baby Preston was delivered by Dr. Lore Wooten. Both mom and baby are doing well.

    XI NU Sorority member, Valerie Donicht, delivered a big gift basket of baby boy supplies to Briggs to welcome little Preston. The XI NU Sorority donates a gift basket each year to the mother of the first new years baby, “It is one of the ways the sorority gives service to the community,” shared Donicht. Donticht has been a member of the sorority for thirty-three years and stated that they have been giving these new year baby baskets for longer than she has been a member.
