Why We Love the Packers

Why we love the Packers!

Saturday, September 10th @ 2:00 P.M.
Revisit the remarkable history of the Green Bay Packers and get geared up for the 2016 Packer season!

After a career as a history teacher and school superintendent in Wisconsin, Jim Rice began writing about the Packers in 2011. Four four books later, and he's sharing what he's learned in Why we love the Packers!  Using hundreds of photographs of his old football cards, newspapers, and magazines, Rice brings the seasons to life, and fans enjoy watching for their favorite players in nearly a century of unprecedented Packer success.

Jim Rice, the author of 92 Years!  Bears-Packers 1921-2013, is originally from Long Island New York.  He attended Marquette University and then pursued a career in education for 35+ years.  Rice retired in 2010 after serving as the School Superintendent in Neosho, Wisconsin from 1998-2010.   

Rice first wrote Giant Cheeseheads shortly after retiring.  This book details the close and interesting relationship between the New York Giants and the Green Bay Packers.  His second book, Great Games of the Gridiron, details the great NFL championship games before the first Super Bowl after the 1966 season.  Thirty three championship games are reviewed.  Many legendary teams and stars make their mark on the NFL’s biggest stage.

92 Years! is Rice’s complete account of every game between the Bears and the Packers from 1921-2014.  The details of each game are here, as well as all the antics surrounding the rivalry.  His latest work, Green Bay’s 13 Championship Seasons, goes into detail about each of Green Bay’s 13 NFL titles. Each regular season is examined and all the postseason action is included.

PAWS to R.E.A.D. with a Reading Education Assistance Dog!

Animals are ideal reading companions because they foster relaxation, lower blood pressure, listen attentively, do not  judge, or criticize, and allow children to proceed at their own pace. When a dog is "listening" fear of failure is removed allowing a child to learn more effectively. The dog's handler is a skilled facilitator who provides subtle support.

Our R.E.A.D. teams are volunteers and do not get paid. Please call ahead to confirm scheduling. 920.748.6160
