and the MOST BEAUTIFUL baby is

April 24, 2015

Through late November and on into the end of January The Clare County Review was in search of finding a child who could be named the Clare County Reviews most Beautiful Baby. In the past there use to be recognition for being the first baby born in Clare, since the hospital no longer takes in maternity patients we thought a contest would be a great way to fill the void as well as help our Facebook page grow and help us get The Clare County Review into the hands of the community beyond the 10,000 print editions published weekly. Grow it did, we jumped from 600 likes to almost 4000 in just a few months.

BeautifulBaby-6During the contest 127 beautiful baby smiles graced The Clare County Review Facebook page as parents, friends, grandparents and family members entered their little ones (ages 0-24 months) into the contest. Each day during the contest several bright happy smiles warmed our hearts and made our day. When the entries were complete on December 31, 2014 voting began January 10 and completed on January 30th. It was nice to see such positive comments left about each baby being beautiful, after all babies are beautiful and hold a special place in our hearts.
