“The Calendar Project,” it says on the website, “is part of an initiative to celebrate and honor the women in our church. October will be declared ‘First Parish Celebrates Women Month.’ This calendar focuses on the beauty and accomplishments of senior women ages 66 to 85 in a whimsical and naughty way!”
All the 12 women represented in the 2006 calendar are members of the church. “This is a thumbs-up to older women,” said Judy Perry, 71, also known as Ms. February.
It certainly is, and you can have your very own copy for just US$15 by postal mail or PayPal. I’ve ordered mine. How about you? And I've sent a note to the church suggesting men for 2007, but they've probably already thought of that.
