Brown County celebrates 'Donald Driver Day'


The Brown County Board has officially declared today, Thursday, Jan. 17, 2013, as “Donald Driver Day.”

Though maybe not as widespread as the Aaron Rodgers Day that was held Dec. 12, 2012, Packers fans have got to believe that #80 understands what he means to fans not only in Brown County, but throughout the state, the country and even the world. His influence, attitude and spirit have infected us all. He is a class man, a huge asset to the Green Bay Packers organization and whatever his decision in the coming weeks about his football future, he is destined to be elected to the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame.

Driver, though not at Wednesday’s meeting of the county board, said in a statement, “It’s truly an honor to have January 17, 2013, become Donald Driver Day. I will always appreciate the special relationship that I share with the Green Bay Packers fans and I have so many incredible memories of my time spent in Green Bay and Brown County. I look forward to remaining a fixture in the community here and for many years to come.”

That sounds like someone who will be with us, if not on the gridiron, at least within our communities. For that, we’ve got to be happy.
