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. 

Learner Maturity: Keeping it Simple

Learner Maturity: Keeping it Simple

Thursday September 8th at 6:30 P.M.

Dave Peppler M.S.E., the founder of Purpose and Potential Pathways LLC will be at the Ripon Public Library to share his thoughts on an idea he calls “Learner Maturity”. The idea of Learner Maturity starts with the premise that we are all born with the capacity to learn. As natural learners the power of each learner’s perspective and perceptions serve to shape and significantly influence what and how we learn as well as whom we are as learners. This is true whether you are in school, in your work and career, or where ever you may be in your life journey.
