Where’s the beef?

The Laddermen of Shelter Island’s volunteer Fire Department are featured in a calendar to benefit the Burn Center at the Stony Brook University Medical Center, but don’t expect to see much skin.

“The New York City beefcake firefighter calendars are wonderful,” said Christine Beckwith, whose husband Stanley has been putting out fires in Shelter Island for 17 years. “But there isn’t a lot of beef on Shelter Island. We work with what we have.”

It took three months for Beckwith and photographer Beverlea Walz to complete the project.
