Morning brats and the ATM

Posted by Aaron Popkey on May 18, 2013 – 11:30 am

“It’s never too early for a brat,” Aaron Taylor said as he put some garnish on a bratwurst outside a Wisconsin Rapids grocery store that was hosting a brat fry fundraiser for a local VFW post.

“It’s never too early for a brat,” Aaron Taylor said as he put some garnish on a bratwurst outside a Wisconsin Rapids grocery store that was hosting a brat fry fundraiser for a local VFW post.

On the fifth and final day of the tour, the players started off by thanking the vets working the stand for their service.

A handful of shoppers said hello to the players and posed for pictures.

“You stopped here just to make me feel smaller than I am,” said a diminutive woman with a smile.

“That’s what we do,” offered Taylor.

The group then stopped by to say hello to staff and customers at an Associated Bank.

Taylor hit the ATM outside to obtain some cash for the next stop, a visit to a village-wide rummage sale in Port Edwards.

    Is it any wonder the Packers have the best and most loyal fans in the NFL?

    The Packers work hard at their entire fan base, from kids to seniors, to make all of us all feel a valued part of the entire operation. My one share of Packer stock makes me feel special and proud to be a part of the greatest team in the NFL.

    GO PACK…..
