Day Brightener – From A German Retirement Home – A Calendar For All Ages

Retirement Home.What a fantastic idea! I’ll just 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 the German press, 5000 calendars were printed.  And they were given out to residents of the Senior Centre, along with relatives and staff. The calendar models were interviewed about the project and said it was a ton of fun to dress up as their favorite actors. The shoot was done with professional stylists and photographers to make sure everything looked as cool as possible. The oldest senior involved with the calendar was 98 years!
