Previous years calendars are still available

Most of the previous years’ calendars are still available for sale and include many more photographs and historic essays related to the Village and Town of Champlain, New York. 

The calendars are priced the same as when they were first sold.  This is because these calendars contain historic photographs and an historic essay that has no relevance to the year that it was sold in.  The majority of people buying this calendar have bought it for the pictures and descriptions and not for the actual calendar showing the days of the month.  Thus, I believe that these calendars hold their value regardless of the year that they are sold in.  I have had many requests from people over the years who have purchased a calendar several years after it was produced.  I have been told that many people are collecting the entire series.  I thank the people who have purchased my calendars and have held on to them as keepsakes.
