Community's celebration of first baby of new year humbles mother

Posted: Thursday, February 12, 2004

I am the mother of the first baby of the year 2004. The honor came as a surprise to me, but what came as a bigger surprise was the response from the community.

I knew that this community was generous to those with needs, but the response in celebration of a baby's birth both humbled and awed me. This is an awesome community.

In appreciation, I would like to say thank you to the following: Central Peninsula General Hospital for the great staff it has working there and for the gift basket, the Hospital Auxiliary for the gift basket, Mykel's restaurant, Ray Mullins Photography, Edward Jones Investments, First National Bank, Subway, Magic Moments, Safeway, Sweeney's Clothing, Soldotna Professional Pharmacy, A Better Fit, Peninsula Clarion, Affinity Salon, Inner Peace Outer Beauty Day Spa, Martin Mines, Karlene's Acupuncture and Day Spa, Soldotna Public Library, Toastmasters, and my wonderful friends at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church who kept us supplied with food.

This community is richer for all of you and may God bless you.

Barbara and Joshua O'Lena
