The Compass - - FRONT PAGE -

— The first baby born in east­ern New­found­land in 2014 is on the move al­ready. Hollie Rae Mercer and her fam­ily are re­lo­cat­ing to north­ern Que­bec, just over a month af­ter she was born at Car­bon­ear Gen­eral Hospi­tal. Hollie Rae was wel­comed into the world at 5:35 a.m. on Jan. 1. Weigh­ing nine pounds and seven ounces, Hollie Rae is the daugh­ter of Brent and Lori Mercer of Shearstown. Hollie’s big brother, three­and-a-half-year-old Caden, was also there to wel­come his new baby sis­ter. Here, the Mercer’s pose for a fam­ily photo prior to their big move to north­ern Que­bec.
