A calendar for the ages

This is just too good to pass up. The image above is from a fundraising calendar offered by the First Parish Church in Framingham. From the creators' FAQ:

The calendar was designed to address the worship of youth culture in our society, show our youth that the elders in their church have a wonderful sense of whimsy and humor, and demonstrate to adults and youths that women are beautiful at all ages.

Why did the individual women decide to pose for the calendar?
Reasons include: it would be fun; something I always wanted to do but never had a chance to do; love celebrating senior women; great for senior women everywhere to see that their contemporaries are bold and adventuresome; time to respond in a positive way to society’s worship of youth; we should be proud of our bodies and our talents and let the world know that; have a sense of humor and thought this would be a whimsical thing to do; knew the photographer, Lynne Damianos, would create a high quality, tastefully designed photo.

You can order one from the link above. I did.
