A Little Friday File Fun

In Barberton, Ohio, an assisted living facility has created a charity calendar with participation from residents. According to the Associated Press, the models for the calendar are in their 80s and 90s, but that didn’t stop them from showing a little skin. Miss March, who’s 88, wears a green top hat and not much else in the calendar from Pleasant Pointe Assisted Living, and the centerfolds are two women in their 90s who seem to be playing poker with strategically placed oversize cards. For February, there’s a smiling, white-haired lady soaking in a bubble bath and flower petals, with chocolates and lingerie nearby. At 87, she’s the same age as the youngest of three models standing in the cover photo, where their bare feet and shoulders peek out from behind a banner they hold advertising the Barberton facility and the affiliated Pleasant View Health Care Center. Money from the $12 calendars goes toward a fund providing shoes for children in the local schools in the city of Barberton.
