Pictured here is baby Chloe who was Chilliwack's first baby of 2015.


New Year's baby, the first born at a hospital, personifies the birth of a fresh new year. It's a coveted title. According to Fraser Health, Chilliwack's first birth was a 7-pound-7-ounce baby girl who clocked in at 12:52 a.m. on January 1, 2015.

Beautiful little Chloe came to parents Frank and Marina Arnusch as the third addition to their family, joining brothers; Elliot, 5, and Emerson, 3.


But Chloe wasn't quick enough to beat the first baby born in BC, a boy, who came into the world at five seconds after midnight at Peace Arch Hospital in White Rock.

Welcome Wagon representatives usually have a bevy of items including toys for the baby and things for mom such as diapers as well as gifts from local businesses. This hasn't been confirmed with the local branch.

Editor's Note: Thanks to Ken Donohue from Fraser Health for his help with this story over the holidays.
