Congratulations to Benjamin and Dorothy Hofer, the parents of the 2018 New Year’s baby.
Nathaniel Jacob Hofer came in a hurry and arrived at the Drumheller Health Centre at 9:17 p.m. January 1. He weighed in at seven pounds, 6.4 ounces, and was delivered by Dr. Maseka.
He arrived within a day of his due date and is the younger brother of Jethro and Tabea, who are excited to have a baby brother. He is also the first New Year’s Baby from the Hillview Colony near Rosebud.
Little does Nathaniel and his parents know, but they are about to be showered with gifts from generous businesses and individuals in Drumheller and area.
