Madison – Governor Scott Walker issued a proclamation declaring today, January 6, 2017, as “Green and Gold Day” throughout Wisconsin in anticipation of the Green Bay Packers playoff game at Lambeau Field versus the New York Giants this Sunday, January 8, 2017.
“Here in Wisconsin, the Green Bay Packers are more than a football team,” Governor Walker said. “Packer fandom is a tradition passed down from generation to generation and represents some of the things that make our state so great – dedication, loyalty, and passion. This season has been especially fun as a Packers fan, and their performance as a team has shown us the importance of working hard and always persevering, especially when the odds seem stacked against you. This Sunday, I’ll join the citizens of Wisconsin in cheering the Green Bay Packers on to victory. And to help get the Packer Nation excited for the game, I’m happy to declare today as ‘Green and Gold Day’ throughout the state.”
