This year Destiny May is Smoky Mountain Pregnancy Care Center’s first baby of the New Year.

She is the daughter of Tia Boatright and Cody Anderson.

The couple received a big basket full of goodies – thanks to the assistance of CareNet of Macon County – along with the large Baby Bag SMPCC always provides for their new babies.

Pictured are 4-Her Allyson Bates, Joe Deal with Farm Bureau, 4-H agent Tammara Talley and 4-Her Gabe Pickens.Macon County Farm Bureau supported the youth in 2014 by contributing $3,600 to the Macon County 4-H program. Their support provided lambs and feed for youth participants in the 4-H Market Lamb Club.

Farm Bureau also donated $1,000 to the Macon County 4-H Endowment Fund to support youth programs like summer day camps and activities throughout the year.

Contributions like Farm Bureau's make sure county youth have positive opportunities and activities to build leaders for the future.

For more information about 4-H, call the Macon County Cooperative Extension office at (828)349-2046.

The odds of having one New Year’s baby is slim but two is rare. However, that is exactly what happened to Crystal Hayes.

Crystal’s daughter, Starla Watts, was Angel Medical Center’s New Year’s baby in 2007. Then, brother Leo Q. Hayes Jr. decided he wanted to be Angel’s New Year’s baby and he was born to Crystal and Leo Hayes on Jan. 1, 2015.

To add more coincidence, both infants were born at 35 weeks, 2 days, and Kecia Hursey, RN was present at both deliveries at Angel.

After a brief stay at Mission Hospital, Leo is now home with his family, including another big sister, Aliyiah.

Shown are Starla and her new brother, along with Angel Medical Center nurses, Robin Villiard and Hursey.

New officers have been installed for the Franklin Garden Club for 2015. Pictured (L-R) are Larry Noyes, treasurer; Jodi Yacks, vice president; Susan Parrott, president; Jeanne Vaughters, past president; Nancy Taro and Debbie Ryals, recording secretaries.
