Miss March, who’s 88, wears a green top hat and not much else in the calendar from Pleasant Pointe Assisted Living, and the centerfolds are two women in their 90s who seem to be playing poker with strategically placed oversize cards.
Flip to February and you’ll see a smiling, white-haired Dottie Rutter soaking in a bubble bath and flower petals, with chocolates and lingerie nearby.
At 87, she’s the same age as the youngest of three models standing in the cover photo, where their bare feet and shoulders peek out from behind a banner they hold advertising the Barberton facility and the affiliated Pleasant View Health Care Center.
It reads: “Pleasant View, Pleasant Pointe.”

Another resident in the calendar is covered only by a large exercise ball.
Administrator Teresa Morris told The Akron Beacon Journal that the residents were clearly having fun the morning the photos were taken.
“The residents were like 20-year-olds — giggling, and having the time of their lives,” Morris said. “I do not believe the elderly should just sit around staring at each other. I want a fun environment where I challenge them and they challenge me.”
Money from the $12 calendars goes toward a fund providing shoes for children in the local schools in the city of Barberton.
