Could he be inducted into the Hall of Fame? Packers to make announcement on Brett Favre Monday
GREEN BAY (WITI) -- The Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame Inc. and the Green Bay Packers will make a joint announcement regarding former quarterback Brett Favre Monday, Aug. 4, at 1:30 p.m., in the new Hall of Fame under construction in the Lambeau Field Atrium.
The announcement will feature in-person remarks from Packers Hall of Fame Inc. President Perry Kidder and Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy. Bob Harlan, a member of the Packers Hall of Fame Inc. executive committee and chairman emeritus of the Packers, will also speak.
Favre will share remarks via telephone.
The Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame Inc. is a nonprofit corporation independent of the Green Bay Packers that guides the Hall as a historic national sports venue and educational resource to the Green Bay community and the state of Wisconsin.
The Hall raises funds through its annual induction banquet, Golf Classic and other events to preserve the history of the Green Bay Packers and expand its archives. Historic memorabilia donated by individuals to the Hall may qualify as tax-deductible gifts.
Originally established in 1967 as a temporary display in the concourse of the Brown County Veterans Memorial Arena, the Hall moved into its own facility in 1976 near Lambeau Field.
In 2003, it relocated to the Lambeau Field Atrium. It is currently closed for the ongoing Atrium renovation project and will reopen in 2015.
While the Packers Hall of Fame is closed, the Neville Public Museum in Green Bay hosts a temporary exhibit, “Touchdown!”, with selected and additional never-seen-before items from the Hall’s archives.
