To the man of the household -- got a bit lazy about those chores lately? Well sharpen up and get ship shape because Husband of the Year is back. The Waipapa and Districts Lions Club will be holding the popular Husband of the Year show on November 19 at Kerikeri Primary School. Two years ago the show was a huge success. The husbands and partners who took part had heaps of fun while tackling tasks their wives or partners usually do in the home. Men are needed for this year's show. So come on women, enter those husbands or partners of yours who are handy around the house and let others see how good they can be with household chores. Organisers say they can only have 10 men on stage for the show, so eliminations will be held on Novem- ber 12 to find the finalists. Entry forms can be picked up from Dial a Curtain, Kerikeri, Vil- lage Books, Waipapa, or call Marian on 407-5445. Entries close on October 14 and there is no entry fee. There are good prizes. The winner will be crowned on the night and receives a weekend trip for two. All prizes have been donated by local business people. Proceeds from the show will go to the Declan Cooper Appeal to assist a local family to buy a mobility vehicle for young Declan's wheelchair. Firefighters calendar is simply too hot to handle For the boys: Launch of the new firewomen calendar. Smokin' hot: Firemen's charity calendar. For 21 years women have enjoyed gazing lovingly at the firemen pin-ups'' in the Firefighters Cal- endar. This coming year, men get their turn with the launch of a female firefighters calendar. But it wasn't just a case of smil- ing and saying cheese for the models''. Just ask Mr July. At 47, Jeff Shrimpton is the second to oldest pin-up man. The Auckland father-of-four is embarrassed to admit that his daughter's friends have even gone so far as to compare him with Bruce Willis. It's a bit of a laugh really. A few of the boys were joking around and I said I'll show you guys how it's done. It started from there. I thought why not give the older ladies something to look at.'' Mr Shrimpton had a diet of lean protein and frozen vegetables for two weeks before the photoshoot in early April. We were all doing it,'' he says. It was just horrendous.'' The calendars raise funds for various charities, mainly the Child Cancer Foundation who they are supporting in 2012. Calendars cost $10 each.
