Beloit, KS, Jan. 5 - The 2017 New Year's Baby made her arrival Thursday, January 5th at Mitchell County Hospital Health Systems. Emilia Monroe came into the world representing the New Year's rebirth and receiving a few gifts of her own.

Members of the Mitchell County Regional Medical Foundation and Mitchell County Hospital Health Systems presented Emilia, her parents Marisa and Joseph and big sister a basket full of New Year's gifts from surrounding community businesses.

The gift basket included: a $300 Educational CD that was put in Emilia's name, many gift certificates, diapers, baby gifts and many wonderful hand created baby blankets and accessories by local citizens.

"The Foundation is honored to have revived this tradition and so thankful to all the community members that helped us recognize Emilia and her family," said Stephanie Simmons, Executive Director of the Mitchell County Regional Medical Foundation.

Contributions ranged from monetary donations towards the Educational CD to baby gifts and gift certificates.
