The wait begins for New Year’s Baby

In less than a week’s time, on Tuesday, Jan. 1, the waiting begins for the first baby of 2013 and for a winner in The New Prague Times’ First Baby Contest.

Thirteen area businesses are participating in this year’s contest. Each business is donating a gift to the family of the first baby born in 2013 at Mayo Clinic Health System in New Prague.

Registration for the contest ends today (Thursday). People can guess the date and time of birth of this year’s New Year’s Baby. The closest guess earns $100 in New Prague Certificates and second earns $50. Entries can be found in the Thursday, Dec. 6, issue of The Times. People can drop entries off at each of the participating businesses, but the entry must be dropped off at the business whose name appears on the coupon.

Check The Times’ website at newpraguetimes.com for an announcement about the arrival of the New Year’s baby.
