Men's Answer to the "Calendar Girls"

Oh my God - seniors rule! There are more and more calendars with some of the most impish, confident, strutting senior guys baring almost their all to raise money for charity.

Alive and Attractive in Virginia

In 2009 gentlemen living in the Greenspring Retirement Community made a calendar as the result of a dare. Apparently, the good women of the Greenspring Retirement Community in northern Virginia made a calendar similar to the one featured in the 2003 movie "Calendar Girls" starring Helen Mirren and Julie Walters. Their facility holds fund-raisers to help community members who may become financially needy. The ladies calendar was supporting that cause and debuted in 2008, so the men stepped up to the plate for 2009.

There is a saying "the lights are on but nobody's home" which means someone is technically alive but is not mentally operating at full capacity. Well, these gents could never be accused of that. They are downright saucy! I would like to do personal interviews, because the models' facial expressions have sold me on their vitality. Whatever they are doing is working to keep them dynamically alive!

For Charity in Maine

Perhaps not as "senior," but equally saucy are the members of the Lions Club in Fort Kent, Maine. These gentlemen bared "most" in a two-year calendar for 2014 and 2015 to raise funds to support Life Flight of Maine, the University of Maine Fort Kent Foundation, and a cancer charity. It is quite the souvenir and is a limited edition. this $20 bargain can be purchased through the Fort Kent Lions Club Facebook page.

The Movie that Started it All

Not Too Late

These calendars would be a fun way to remind yourself that you are only as old as you act!

      I took some of the photos for the calendar. By the far the most fun I have had at work! They are a great group, and every bit as confident as you suggest.
