continued “Everyone in the calendar is naked; however, it’s done very tastefully,” Beaudin said. “There is no genitalia, no breasts are shown. We’re not fuzzing out anything; we’re posing our models so that it’s done very tastefully.”
So, who’s in the calendar? The committee wants to keep most of the names secret until the reveal party on Aug. 12, but Beaudin gave up a few names to help whet the appetite of the calendar-seeking public.
Beaudin’s husband, Joel, is Mr. March. He posed at his maple sugar shack in North River. Joel is a managing member at the Copperfield Inn and the co-chair of the North Creek Business Alliance.
“My husband first kind of grumbled because he says that I offered him as the first model,” Nancy said. “However, he’s very proud to tell people now, ‘I was the first one to have my picture taken.’”
Nancy didn’t escape with her clothes on; she and other committee members also posed naked for the calendar. The cover photo taken by Craig Murphy features Sally and Bill Heidrich, Mary Ellen Dowling, Sharalee Falzerano and Linda Combs welcoming railway visitors to town at the North Creek train station. Richard Stewart, in his garden on Peaceful Valley Road, is Mr. April. And Frank Conti, playing his saxophone, is Mr. October. But those are all the names Nancy was willing to release until Sunday.
“I think people are very, very curious,” Nancy said. “A lot of people are excited about the project and are anxious for Aug. 12 to come. So once we expose the calendar, they can buy the calendar and it’s out in the open.”
Four photographers helped with the project: Craig Murphy, Stephanie Leonard, Dave Braley and Elise Woodlund. Suzanne Murtha was the graphic artist.
Even before the first calendar is released, some people want to know if there will be a sequel.
“We’re hoping that we have a lot of success and that we can do at least one more,” Nancy said.
