Packers Heritage Trail unveils monument plans

Posted Dec 19, 2012

The Packers Heritage Trail Foundation, Inc. held a press conference on Tuesday, Dec. 18, in the Neville Public Museum Auditorium that unveiled plans for a spectacular new centerpiece for downtown Green Bay.

Cliff Christl, president of the Packers Heritage Trail Foundation, and Scott King, treasurer, unveiled renderings of a new planned monument structure and green space surrounding it and made major announcements about the project. The monument will include a recognition wall for Packers Heritage Trail sponsors and those contributing to its endowment campaign. Green Bay Mayor Jim Schmitt and Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy both spoke at the event, as did some partners in the project.  

The Packers Heritage Trail opened this past summer and includes 22 commemorative plaques, including 21 within a mile of downtown Green Bay. The plaques detail the history of the storied Green Bay Packers and the community’s unwavering support of its cherished franchise over its first 50 years, from Curly Lambeau to Vince Lombardi.

The monument initiative will be coordinated by Packers Heritage Trail, Inc., a non-profit organization consisting of a volunteer board of directors.  Their mission is to promote Green Bay’s downtown, primarily its businesses and trail system, by telling the story of the rich and historic relationship between the Green Bay Packers and the community.

More information about the Packers Heritage Trail, including information on donations, can be found online at http://www.packersheritagetrail.com.
