|Students at the White Lake School are sporting an extra dose of Packer green and gold this year.|
Through a Packer program, non-profit groups in the school are pending their Sundays manning a concession stand at Lambeau Field, earning some cash for their organizations while playing a key role in the Packer Nation.
“The kids have a great time and we get to make some money without asking the people of the White Lake community,” Amy Peters, White Lake school secretary, said.
The stand keeps the students and adult chaperones busy, so they stay in Lambeau’s concourse. But the location of the White Lake booth, in the south end zone, allows easy viewing of the jumbo video screen.
And of course there is plenty of atmosphere to soak in.
The White Lake program is organized by Cathy Lundgren, who has played in instrumental role in getting the volunteers lined up and on the road for each of the team’s 10 home games.
“She has organized all the volunteers and attended every home game,” peers said. “Her dedication has been what has made the program work for our school activity groups.”
Organizations taking part include the yearbook staff, senior class, Booster Club, STAR/PTO, student council/National Honor Society and the school band.
