Frank Lamping 

Named 19th member to the 
Packers Fan Hall of Fame. 

Life long Racine county resident Frank Lamping was inducted into the Packer FAN Hall of Fame yesterday during ceremonies.
Frank was one of ten finalists who was vetted by the Packer organization.
The other finalists included:
John Powers, from Savage, Minn.; Rosemary Scheible, from Wauwatosa, Wi.; Kay Kuester Doran, from Antigo, Wi.; Karen Troyanek, from LaCrosse, Wi.; Carol Postulka, from Pierre, S.D.; LaNore Anderson, from Thorp, Wi.; Mike Sledz, from Grayslake, Ill.; George Oudhuis, from Rolling Prairie, Ind. and Terry Schwefel, from Watertown, Wi.

According to a Packer release:
"Beyond his devotion to the team, what qualifies Frank as the ultimate ambassador for the Packers is the way he embodies the Packers Way. Frank continues to battle cancer, but at the same time has not wavered in his devotion to his community just as he has not wavered in his devotion to the Packers. He has not slowed in his volunteering or enthusiasm for life. Frank truly embodies all that is good about the Green Bay Packers and is unquestionably deserving of a position in the Fan Hall of Fame.”

The community of Union Grove celebrated Frank's award by attending an impromptu parade in downtown Union Grove.  The parade was delayed due to mechanical problems on the charter bus.
Below is a picture of a lone supporter unaware of the schedule change.

The parade was hosted by Fire and Rescue units of Union Grove and Kansasville.
Frank was given a hometown Hero's welcome by about two hundred residents.

Frank reminds us of the movie
 " It's a wonderful life" 
because so few people do so much to help others.

Congratulations to Frank and Andrea Lamping !
