Six years after asking locals to bare it all, Cambridge Community Television is re-releasing its successful Cambridge Uncovered calendar of locals posing in the nude.

CCTV is re-releasing 2,000 copies of the 16-month wall calendar in an effort to raise money for the non-profit station, which has seen a decline in grant funding and donations in the past couple of years, said Executive Director Susan Fleischmann.

Fleischmann said CCTV sold about 3,000 copies of the calendar in 2006, and held onto the remaining supply until the dates re-aligned with the current calendar. That will happen in September of this year through December of 2011, and CCTV is providing stickers to update the calendar years.

Cambridge photographer Mark Ostow shot the calendar, which features notable residents including: writers Anne Bernays and Justin Kaplan; artists Mags Harries and Lajos Heder; peace activists Cathy Hoffman and Betty Burkes; 1369 staff members: Boston Latino Film Festival director Jose Barriga; dancer Rozann Kraus; CCTV staff; Pemberton Farms owners Mark and Tom Saidnawey, and S&H Construction crew members.

Fleischmann said the re-released calendars will sell for $10 each and all proceeds benefit CCTV community outreach programs.

The calendars are now available at the Harvard Bookstore, Porter Square Books, and CCTV at 675 Massachusetts Ave., or online at cctvcambridge.org/store.
