'GOLDEN GIRLS' EVENING SET FOR MAY 16; MOTHER'S AND FATHER'S DAY SPECIALS OFFERED
The Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame Monday announced plans to celebrate past cheerleading squads of the Green Bay Packers with a new exhibit, 'The Golden Girls,' set to launch at a special event from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, May 16.
In addition to a formal unveiling of the new exhibit, the evening's activities will include a gathering of many of the original 'Golden Girls,' the cheerleading squad that led the Lambeau Field faithful in cheers from 1961 through 1972. Guests of the Hall of Fame for the event will receive a 'Golden Girls' photo and be treated to great stories from the cheerleaders' days on the Lambeau Field sidelines.
The exhibit in the Hall of Fame will include pictures, memorabilia and other artifacts from cheerleading squads of the past. The Packers had official cheerleaders for many years throughout the club's history, with the last official squad appearing in 1988. In fact, the Packers are credited as being one of the first professional football teams to use cheerleaders with squads from Green Bay East and West high schools on the sidelines for several games in 1931. Currently, the Packers use cheering squads from two local schools, St. Norbert College in De Pere, Wis., and the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay.
Regular admission rates will apply for the evening's activities.
