Looking For Items to Update Popular Exhibit in Hall; Donation Days Set for Feb. 7-8
The Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame Inc. is putting out a call for fan memorabilia items to be used for updating an exhibit in the Hall of Fame at Lambeau Field.
The donated pieces will be used in the section of the Hall that displays a wide range of unique items, including personalized license plates, headwear, artwork and homemade banners and signs.
The display will be updated for Packers Fan Fest, the annual fan celebration set for March 13-14 in the Lambeau Field Atrium. Included as part of the weekend festivities for Fan Fest attendees is free admission to the Packers Hall of Fame.
"The fan memorabilia display resonates very well with many of our visitors," said Hall of Fame Director and Archivist Tom Murphy. "The items are a direct connection with the fans, as they are the result of their creativity and passion for the team. We receive a lot of feedback on that section – visitors enjoy seeing the many different ways fans support the team.
"We're looking for more of those types of items. The more unique, the better. We urge people to consider any such items they have for donation, to put it in a proper place for posterity and to share with other Packers fans."
