CARIBOU, Maine – Aroostook County’s first baby born in 2014, Maverick A. Randall, was born at 3:21 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 2, at Cary Medical Center to parents, Betsy and Lem Randall of Lake Placid, N.Y.

Weighing in at 8 pounds and 4 ounces, Maverick was 22 inches long.

Dr. Josette Hunter, OB/GYN with Pines Health Services, delivered the baby at the Caribou hospital.

The Randalls planned to be home visiting relatives in Presque Isle for the holidays, and knowing that Betsy’s due date was around Dec. 31, they arranged for her to be seen by Dr. Hunter and have the baby at Cary.

“We knew Dr. Hunter and Cary’s reputation of providing great care, so it was an easy decision for us to stay here to have the baby with family and friends close by,” Betsy explained in a hospital press release. “The hospital has been fantastic and it’s been a very special holiday for all of us.”

Maverick’s maternal grandparents are Robert and Kathy Davis of Presque Isle. The new family was presented with many gifts items from the hospital, members of the Cary Medical Center Auxiliary, Machias Savings Bank, and a handmade quilt donated by the Crown of Maine Quilters.

Cary Auxiliary members have coordinated this project and made personal donations for the past eight years for the first baby born in the new year at Cary.
