Cary welcomes first baby of 2022

CARIBOU, Maine — Cary Medical Center marked New Year’s Day by congratulating the hospital’s 2022 New Year’s baby, Hunter Thomas, and his parents, Shelby Richardson and Dustin Lee of Limestone. 

Hunter was born on Saturday, Jan. 1, at 10:58 a.m., weighing in at 7 pounds, 13 ounces and was 20 inches long. Baby Hunter was delivered by Kim Martin, a certified nurse midwife with Pines Health Services. 

Hunter and his parents were presented with gifts from the hospital and the Cary Medical Center Auxiliary. Cary Auxiliary members personally donate gifts and handmade items for the New Year’s baby basket, which includes items for the baby and for Mom and Dad. 

Auxiliary members have coordinated this project and made personal donations for over the last decade to the first baby born in the New Year at Cary. 

With about 20 active members, the Cary Medical Center Auxiliary continues to thrive, supporting the hospital by hosting various fundraisers with proceeds supporting many hospitals projects.
