The Lodge at Leathem Smith hosted a group of approximately 20 former Packers greats last night at the Green Bay NFL Alumni Celebrity Banquet. Players sat with and enjoyed a few cocktails before dinner with fans before an amazing five course spread put on by the Lodge.
During dinner former Packers greats Jerry Kramer (pictured above), Lynn Dickey and Rob Davis got up in front of the near capacity crowd to answer attendees' questions. Kramer told a few great Vince Lombardi stories, Dickey talked about how fortunate he was to play for the Packers organization and Rob Davis spoke on the current draft and how Green Bay goes about selecting a player.
