A calendar for a cause
It’s a pinup calendar for a cause – a very good cause in our town, indeed.
Donning their 1950s finery, 12 volunteer models – men and women because, after all, this is 2022 – smiled their way through a photo shoot at the Elgin County Railway Museum and other locations for a 2023 calendar that will support Inn out of the Cold.
The Inn and the shoot also will be featured in an episode of a new Bell FibeTV series.
“We can’t wait to see the final results in print and on the TV show,” enthuses Janice Fisher, a member of the Inn board.
But the suspense is not for long. The calendar is to be available Nov. 19 at the Horton Christmas Market (11 a.m. to 5 p.m.), as well as from Inn board members and the models, themselves.
Those dozen community-minded sports:
Darren Connolly, Gregory Dennis,Raymund Fangrad, Genevieve Fisher, Craig Geerlinks, Paul Jenkins,Grayden Laing, Tara McCaulley, Paul Nicli, Joe Preston, Sarah VanPelt and Karen Vecchio.
The calendar came about following local notice of a TV news bit featuring Marcie Riegling and the Blyth, Ont., resident’s Calendars for a Cause charity pin-up calendars.
Marcie, who goes by Miss Marcie Canada’s Pin-Up Girl, has produced eight charity calendars in the past six years. Although she’s a retro enthusiast, she says hers aren’t your parents’ pin-up models.
“I want to change the stigma of that word,” she blogs. In history, pin-ups depicted idealized versions of what some thought a particularly beautiful or attractive woman, she says. “I want to change this, so when people see pin-up, they think about women and men who have overcome issues within society, themselves, and the world.”
The TV series is an evolution of the initiative.
