What an awesome idea!  Re-creating WWII iconic photographs using local celebrities!!!  I am honored to be  part of this project and thank everyone involved for the opportunity to help raise funds for the Richard I. Bong Heritage Center.  Yes, that's Michelle Lee from the Northlands News Center on the cover, as Rosie the Riveter.  Great job, Michelle!   Want to see my re-created photo?

 

Silly, we want you to purchase the calendar...but, you can pre-order right now!  Quantities are limited!!!  However, you probably won't see me in print, in a swimsuit again!  Yes, a swim suit.  I am replicating the famed Betty Grable Pin-Up Girl photo.
