11.8.18

A WINNING TRADITION BEGINS.

Earl Lambeau asked Frank Peck, president of the Indian Packing Company, for money to buy jerseys for a football team.  The first team meeting took place on 11 August 1919.  Indian Packing sold the company to Acme Packing two years later, beginning a tradition of anvils dropped on the heads of assorted Lions and Bears.
