Firefighter Calendars now available

February 3, 2003

Albany--If you are looking for something hot, the 2003 City of Albany Firefighters Calendar is now on sale. The 12 firefighters who posed for the calendar were the guests of honor at a presentation party Monday afternoon at the Fire Department headquarters. They even autographed copies.

 The money raised by the sale of the calendars will go to the Coalition to End Homelessness in Albany. The firefighters say helping people is why they posed.

Firefighter Tony Knight said "It took a little tucking and working out here trying to get back where I wanted to be, but everything came out just fine. I really like it."

 Captain Greg Maze said "I'm really enjoying it, and the cause it's for really motivates me to get involved."

Miller Brewing Company donated 9 thousand dollars for the initial printing. Some of the money raised will be held to pay for next year's calendar printing, to make it an on-going project to help fight homelessness. The calendars cost 10 dollars, and you can buy one at
