Helen Mirren unfortunately isn't involved, but she'd likely approve of Akron's very own version of Calendar Girls. Residents of Pleasant Pointe Assisted Living—women in their 80s and 90s—have bared all in the name of charity. And as the AP tells it, the $12 calendar they've put together is a bit edgy and not without humor: Its cover reads "Pleasant View, Pleasant Pointe."

Open it, and you'll find Miss January, age 98, holding a well-placed exercise ball; Miss February soaking in a tub with lingerie and chocolates nearby; and the 88-year-old Miss March wearing "a green top hat and not much else." The money that's raised will go to a fund that provides shoes for children who attend Barberton Schools. The Beacon Journal has a couple more photos. (Read more elderly stories.)
