WINCHESTER – While the first baby of 2024 at the Winchester District Memorial Hospital isn’t the first in the region, he did make a timely entry.

Everett Noort arrived at 8:24 p.m. on Monday – or 20:24 on the 24-hour clock.

The hospital says Everett’s parents, Marissa and Ben and big sister Eloise, “couldn’t be happier.”

The Noorts live in Winchester and have “strong roots in the area,” WDMH said.

A baby in Cornwall was the first to arrive New Year’s Day at 8:04 p.m.
