A variety of 2004 calendars expose the virtues of Bay living - in more ways than one!


There’s not a pin-up girl among them, but the photos are eye-catching nonetheless. We refer to a recent spate of photo calendars created to support worthy local causes. But you probably won’t find these on your grocer’s shelves, so we’ve included prices and ordering info below.


    “The Gents of Kent Island” is probably the raciest of the bunch, depicting notable Kent Islanders in all their splendor (except the sheriff, who wouldn’t take his shirt off). Proceeds go to building a new fire station that will serve the island and beyond. Send $12 plus $3 shipping and handling to the Kent Island Volunteer Fire Department, P. O. Box 27, Stevensville, MD 21666; 410-643-5454;


    Dave Harp’s lush photography makes “Chesapeake Bay Naturally” a work of art. A portion of the proceeds benefits the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay. Send $11.95 plus $2 shipping and handling (Md. residents add 5 percent sales tax) to David Harp Gallery, 432 Race St., Cambridge, MD 21613 or purchase it online at


    In “The Watermen of Parrish Creek” David Maher’s black-and-white photographs capture some of the individuals who continue to ply the waters below the South River. Proceeds support the Anne Arundel Waterman’s Association and the Friends of Discovery Village. Send $10 plus $2 shipping and handling to Discovery Village, Shady Side, MD 20764.


    “The Heart and Soul of the Chesapeake” is a 16-month calendar (beginning November 2003) featuring the stunning black-and-white photographs of the late A. Aubrey Bodine, whose nostalgic images capture the waterfront of times past. Send $9.95 plus $2 shipping and handling to the St. Michaels Business Association, P. O. Box 1221, St. Michaels, MD 21663; 800-808-7622. Order online from or
