UPDATE: Ashby Ponds residents almost bare all
The residents of Ashby Ponds are showing some skin for a good cause.
The senior citizens at the retirement community posed for a special 2012 calendar in the buff, but are minimally covered by seasonal décor in an effort to raise support for the community’s Benevolent Care Fund, which provides support to residents who outlive their financial resources. The funds would allow the individuals with the capability to continue to live at Ashby Ponds.
The idea for the calendar, which took one year to produce, was born during a resident happy hour in July 2010. Each month features several residents posed in a variety of clubs in which they participate; the Garden Club, the Dog Walkers, the Songbirds, and more.
Ashby Ponds hosted a grand opening for its 2012 Calendar on Nov. 5 at the retirement community in Ashburn.
Mary Terry and Natalie Margiotta, who serve on the Ashby Ponds resident calendar committee, claim the eye-catching calendars are worth the attention, saying one resident has even purchased 25 copies to give away as Christmas presents.
