Pen Bay welcomes first baby born in 2014
Rockport — On Jan. 7, at 7:54 p.m. Pen Bay Medical Center welcomed Bryson Jacob Dennison into the world.
The first baby to be born at Pen Bay Medical Center in 2014, Bryson, the first-born child of Meaghan Hayward and Jeremy Dennison of Camden, was presented with a huge basket that included baby supplies, toys and books, all donated by Pen Bay staff and volunteers.
He weighed 8 pounds, 6 ounces and was 20 inches long.
Dennison, along with other babies who are expected to be born in Maine this year, is eligible for the Harold Alfond College Challenge. Through this program, a one-time $500 grant is available for every Maine baby to open a NextGen college investing account. The child must be a Maine resident and must be named as the account beneficiary to a NextGen account before the child’s first birthday. For more information, visit 500forbaby.org.
