Calendar features beautiful babies

When the call went out for photos of beautiful babies for the 2006 Barons’ Ball Calendar, no one expected the overwhelming response that flooded the American Cancer Society office in Fayetteville. Over 153 photos and $20 entry fees were submitted for judging. It was a colossal challenge to pick the twelve finalist; one for each month of the year. Once the twelve finalist were chosen, professional photos of the twelve babies were taken in clothing donated by Carter’s Clothing by Debbie McFarland, Owner of the Memory Cottage Photo Studio and sponsor of the Barons’ Ball baby calendar. Enlarged copies of the twelve baby’s photos were carried in the Peachtree City 4th of July parade, full color ballots were handed out all over the county, published in the local press and then the votes started coming in, at a dollar a vote.
