Mary Joyce Kerr (Wood), a member of our Crescent Heights High School Alumni community, is celebrating her 90th birthday as Calgary’s first new years baby in 1927.

“I love being a New Year’s baby,” Kerr said. “It was quite a big thing back then. It always came up wherever I went that I was the first New Year’s baby — it was my one day of fame.”
