Creative Calendar from a Retirement Home

A Creative Calendar from a Retirement Home
What a fantastic idea.  I bet they had a ball.  


A German Retirement Community did a calendar where seniors amazingly recreated famous movie scenes.

The Contilia Retirement Group in Essen, 
Germany made what is probably the best calendar ever with a few of their seniors.

According  to German press, 5,000 calendars 
were printed. 
And they were given out to residents of the senior center, 
along with relatives and staff.

The calendar models were interviewed about the project.

They said it was a ton of fun to dress up as their favorite actors.

The shoot was done with professional stylists.  

The photographers tried to make sure everything 
look as cool as possible.

The  oldest senior involved with the calendar was 98 years old!

‘Growing old’ is mandatory,
‘growing up’ is optional !!
AND AS THEY SAY IN THE CLASSICS …
If you haven’t grown up by the time you are FIFTY
then you damn well don’t have to !!!!
