The first baby of 2014 born in the Northwood-Kensett school district will once again be a gifted child. That's because 12 Northwood area merchants will be supplying the first baby and his or her family with birthday gifts totaling over $200 in value.

To qualify for the gifts the announcement of the birth must be submitted to the Northwood Anchor as soon as possible.

The winning baby must be born to parents living in the Northwood-Kensett school district; and the baby's time and date of birth, gender, place of birth, weight, name and the names of the baby's parents must all be given.

Once the official announcement has been made in the Northwood Anchor, the parents are welcome to pick up the gifts from the participating merchants, listed below.

Fallgatter's Market will help provide for many of the first baby's grocery needs, with a $15 gift certificate for baby products.

Northland Custom Interiors will give a $20 gift certificate to help provide a special touch to the first baby's home.

The first baby's parents will have a perfect place to store the baby's first clothes, once the first baby has put them to good use, with a new laundry basket from Northwood True Value.

One of the first baby's first toys will be provided by Carquest Auto Parts with a limited edition collector car.

They will also drink well with a bottle of wine from Shade Tree Liquors.

The first baby's parents will also be able to enjoy an evening out with a night at the movies, courtesy of the Northwood Theatre.

Gifts for the first baby's financial future will come in the form of a $25 opening deposit in a kid's piggy bank CD from Farmers State Bank.

The parents can also bank on the first baby's future, with $25 towards a new savings account from NSB Bank.

The vehicle used to transport the first baby will also be maintained well with a free oil change at A & I Auto, Inc.

If the first baby is transported in more than one vehicle, Knutson also will also provide a free oil change.

They will also enjoy a special baby gift from Ver Heist Drug.

And the first baby's parents will be kept up to date with local news and events, thanks to a one year subscription to the Northwood Anchor.
