PACKERS FAN HALL OF FAME
Vivian Scherf-Laabs, 80, of Cedarburg, Wis., was named the 16th member of the Green Bay Packers FAN Hall of Fame on Wednesday at Lambeau Field.
A lifelong Cedarburg resident, Scherf-Laabs was selected by fans from 10 finalists during a voting period that ran from Jan. 1-31. More than 20,000 votes were cast from throughout the United States and countries around the world.
Scherf-Laabs was nominated by her twin brother Stewart Scherf, who said that Scherf-Laabs has gone to several games at both Milwaukee County Stadium and Lambeau Field.
She is extremely proud of the personal connection she shares with one of the team’s legends, Bart Starr, as she and her twin were born on the same day as the former Packers quarterback and coach.
Scherf-Laabs will receive four club seats to a 2014 Packers home game; a $500 Packers Pro Shop gift certificate; a road trip for two to a 2014 Packers away game, including game tickets, air fare and hotel accommodations; and a one-year subscription to Packers Plus.
The honoree also will have her name permanently displayed in a place of honor in the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame.
The Green Bay Packers established the Packers FAN Hall of Fame in 1998 for the purpose of annually honoring a devout and longtime Packers fan.
