9/11 Memorial Kicks Green Bay Packer Statue into End Zone

Green Bay, Wisconsin is erecting a 9/11 memorial in front of the Neville Public Museum, in Leicht Park, knocking their 22 ft. tall Packer Receiver statue into storage. As the statue was prepared for removal on March 30, a leg was accidentally yanked off. The leg can be repaired, but the fate of Green Bay's well-known landmark is unclear.

The new 9/11 memorial that will take the football player's place is designed as two skinny, 30-ft. tall steel towers mounted on a pentagon base. A chunk of authentic Ground Zero scrap will sit in front of the memorial, which will be lit at night. Dedication is scheduled for June 1, 2005. It's the first in a series of identical monuments manufacturer Pen-T Memorials plans to erect in every state.

The Green Bay Packer Receiver statue moved in front of the museum in November 2003 after the Packer Hall of Fame was absorbed inside the stadium. The city of Green Bay is considering locations to place the football player statue, but until then, the big guy goes into storage.
