Union Grove Man Selected as 19th Member of Packers Fan Hall of Fame
A Union Grove man was named the 19th member of the Packers Fan Hall of Fame.
Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy was on hand to announce the winner.
He will receive four club seats to a 2017 Packers home game; a $500 Packers Pro Shop gift certificate; a road trip for two to a 2017 Packers away game, including game ticket, air fare and hotel accommodations; and a one-year subscription to Packers Plus.
In addition, the honoree will have his name permanently displayed in a place of honor in the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame.
The newest inductee into the Packers Fan Hall of Fame is Frank Lamping of Union Grove.
Frank has state four prostate cancer and is undergoing chemotherapy. But that hasn't stopped him from cheering on the Pack.
He was chosen out of ten finalists.
The announcement was followed by rousing applause from a group of his supporters who gathered in Green Bay for the announcement.
Frank's name will now be on permanent display at Lambeau Field.
The Pack is the first professional football team to have a hall of fame for fans that started in 1998.
It was founded for the purpose of annually honoring a devout and longtime Packers fan.
