Arlo Jane Groves, born at 9:13 p.m. on Jan. 8, was Moab’s first 2020 newborn. Local businesses, including The Times-Independent donated various prizes. Among the awards: Baby moccasins, diapers, baby wipes, gift certificates to stores around town and a free tire rotation for the family vehicle.

Moab Regional Hospital, where Arlo was born, played a short jingle across the public announcement system when the baby was born. Arlo is Erin and Jeff Groves’s first child.
