Voting is underway to select the eighth member of the Packers FAN Hall of Fame.
Last month, Packers fans were asked to nominate themselves or a friend for the honor with an essay of 500 words or less, accompanied by a photo, telling why they should be recognized.
From those nominations, 10 finalists were selected by the Packers FAN Hall of Fame selection committee, comprised of members of the Packers front office and the Packers Hall of Fame Board of Directors.
This year's 10 finalists are:
-Rudy Carmenaty, Massapequa Park, N.Y.
-Caroline B. Comella, Appleton, Wis.
-Bob Esch, Caledonia, Minn.
-Jeff Kahlow, Fond du Lac, Wis.
-Kathy Lazzaro, Milwaukee.
-Patrick Finkler, Reading, Mass.
-Thomas P. Hay, Sun Prairie, Wis.
-Frank Parks, Newfield, N.J.
-Ray Schrader, Wabeno, Wis.
-April Skony, Jupiter, Fla.
Now it's once again up to the fans who can read the finalists' profiles and vote online by logging on to www.packers.com.

Ballots also are available at sponsor retail outlets statewide: Time Warner Cable, Steins Gardens and Gifts, ShopKo, Best Buy, Packers Pro Shop, Packers Hall of Fame and the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel lobby.
Voting deadline is midnight, Dec. 9, 2005. Voters will be entered into a random drawing to win a 2006 Road Trip to an away game with the Packers.
The honoree's selection will be announced Dec. 16, 2005. He or she will receive four club seats to a Packers home game, at which he or she will be recognized on the Lambeau Field Tundra Vision video boards, a $500 Packers Pro Shop gift certificate and a road trip for two to a 2006 Packers away game, including game ticket, air fare and hotel accommodation.
The honoree also will be introduced during the Packers Hall of Fame Induction Banquet next July and have his or her name permanently displayed in a place of honor in the Packers Hall of Fame.
