A few friends at Longhorn Village, a senior living community in Steiner Ranch that has its own on-site bar, were catching up over glasses of wine before dinner when the conversation turned to the 2003 movie “Calendar Girls” — a British comedy in which a group of women produce a nude calendar to raise money for cancer research.

“We thought we ought to do something like that. And then we started getting a lot more serious,” said resident and calendar organizer Liz Tait. “So many people put in ideas, ‘What about this for this month, or what about that for that month?’ We thought, ‘OK, we’re going to do this.’”
