|The Pasty Cam Millennium Calendar
|Have you ever heard how Pasty Central began?
In 1995 - with shots of the US-41 Snow Thermometer - Still Waters Community
Elders Home went on the web, hoping to meet new friends, share the beauty
of the Keweenaw, and explore much-needed additional funding for this non-profit
Home. In '96, photos of our residents' activities included "Pasty
Day"... and several web friends suggested that we make those delicious
pasties available for home delivery. Some 31,000+ pasties later,
we continue to meet new friends, and provide the best U.P. style, USDA
approved pasties available anywhere.
Along the way other features were born - the Golden
Pasty Award, "Past-E-Mail" and the daily Pasty Cam. I suppose
it was inevitable that we make a calendar including some of our visitors'
favorite scenes from the cam Archives.
||The Pasty Cam Millennium Calendar has truly been
a labor of love. A joint project of our residents, staff, and viewers,
the calendar includes 14 beautiful full color Keweenaw shots in a handy
pocket sized format (5.5" x 4.25" folded). Hangs nicely on the refrigerator,
How do you put a price tag on a labor of love?
You could consider the set-up and printing cost (approx $5 each), or how
much comparable scenic calendars go for ($5 - ??), or the fact that it's
one of a kind ($priceless?)
|You are welcome to purchase
as many of the Pasty Cam calendars as you like, for $5 each plus $1 s/h.
But we are also sending the calendar
as a "Thank You" to the many friends who are helping us in our current
building project. Almost two decades old, our facility has finally
been refurbished this fall. New roof, siding, and windows have been
made possible by a large loan from Rural Development.
...a loan we'll have to repay, of course.
Gift to Still Waters are tax deductible (in excess
of items received). And gifts of any size are appreciated.
Donations submitted (or postmarked) before midnight, December 31 will be
receipted in the 1999 tax year. Credit card or checks are ok (see
secure link below).
You can designate where you would like the Pasty
Cam 2000 Calendar sent - whether to yourself or a friend. A gift
note will simply say, "A donation has been received to help refurbish
Still Waters Assisted Living in Calumet, a Michigan non-profit organization".

2000 Thank You
Thank you for your consideration in helping with
this project, and remember the calendars can also be purchased over in
the Pasty Central GiftNook, along
with some other interesting gifts.
What will the new millennium bring? Here
at Pasty Central we hope to keep on providing you "The Best of the U.P."
each day on the Pasty Cam and other features. If you're in our neck
of the woods next summer (or this winter on your snowmobile), stop in and
say hello at 600 East Elm Street. There's always room for another
