Cable, WI (NNCNOW.com) -- A dozen lucky women from Bayfield County are feeling like celebrities.

They're featured in the 2014 Real Women of Namakagon Calendar – all in the name of charity and some fun.

Paging through this calendar, you may not recognize the faces.

"I really like February, just because her husband is in the background," said Elizabeth Roberts, who was featured as 'Miss April.'

For many in the Namakagon area, the women are wives, daughters, neighbors and friends.

"I knew all the women who were in the calendar, but that comes with being born and raised in the area," said Susan Fibert who was featured as 'Miss June.'

The 2014 must have features women showing off what they have to offer in the community.

"This year they looked into the rest of the community and other women who are empowering to the community and have important roles in the community as well. So they chose me because I represent the chamber of commerce and have been born and raised here," said Fibert.

The goal of the pin –up calendar is to support the Namakagon area's natural resources and local businesses.
All 12 beauties had a hand in putting the master piece together.

"We kind of had to do everything. We had to pick our hair styles, had to pick our outfits kind of what we wanted to do with our photo shoot like a theme and stuff," said Roberts.

"I own and run the laundry mat in cable so we went with the theme of me hanging out laundry in my towel," said Cheryl Rondeau, featured as 'Miss July.'

"I've been working in an office pretty much my whole life, so we revolved my photo shoot around an antique office," said Fibert.

The money from the calendar sales will go to Cable area Lions Club, Care Food shelf, Namakagon Lakes Association and Namakagon Trail Groomers.

Calendars can be found at various businesses in Cable and Hayward.
