April 7, 1954 - The Packers announce they will conduct their training camp in Stevens Point for the first time. General manager Verne Lewellen said he had signed contracts to use training facilities at Stevens Point College and high school from July 25 to August 27. The team, which trained the previous three years in Grand Rapids, Minn., will be housed in dormitories at the college and will make use of the dining halls there. The club will use the athletic fields of both institutions.
