It’s official!! Dr. Kerpe is a Grandpa (or “Senelis” in Lithuanian.)

We are very proud to announce the safe arrival of Zachary Robert Zolner on Friday, May 8, 2020 at Northwestern Memorial Delnor Hospital in Geneva. Mother, Calla Zolner, and baby are both doing well. A highlight of Zachary’s arrival was the unexpected attendance of his father, Christopher Zolner, who is finishing military training at Ft. Benning in Columbus, Ga.

Thanks to everyone who submitted their best guesses in “Dr. Kerpe’s 1st Grandchild Guessing Game,” a non-betting spinoff of the traditional baby pool. “It was just a fun way for the community to share in our family’s excitement and give away some prizes from local businesses like ours.” said Dr. Kerpe. “Zachary will have quite the birth story to talk about when he gets older,” he said about his grandson’s arrival during the worldwide COVID pandemic .
