In advance of the Green Bay Packers highly anticipated home game at Lambeau Field against the Vikings on November 1st, Mayor Schmitt has fielded a wide variety of ideas from Packer fans on how to commemorate the occasion, from re-naming streets, to welcoming back other former Packers greats, to creating the world’s largest #4 waffle.

Send the Mayor your thoughts on the best way to "welcome back" the City's famous Number 4! Your ideas will be accepted until Wednesday, October 28th.
