Since 1984, at the home of Fred Harrsch’s, friends and family were invited again this Labor Day to paint the historical Packer Fence across from Lambeau Stadium
with a season’s theme. This years theme: “LOMBARDI LEGACY: LEADERS MADE HERE”! One of Vince Lombardi’s quotes.Bruce Kiel stencils the wording, and we paint between the lines.Fred suffered a severe injury years ago, confined to a wheelchair, but has become a celebrity! Packers’ Mark Murphy comes over to pay a visit and tribute to Fred and Fred’s fence.Jim and Holly Pecard and their sons (Jim originally from Kelly Lake—his grandpa built the original Kelly Lake Bar now known as the Kracken Shack!) help organize and run the event, complete with cookout and beverages.
We ran into other former Kelly Lakers helping paint the sign: Tom and Sandy who had a camper in the park, and Mike Curtis, Squeaky’s brother!
Another fun time, great food thanks to Jim Pecard Sr, and great Green Bay Packer camaraderie! GO PACK GO!
