Packers fans to welcome world champions back home


GREEN BAY (AP) -- Schools in Green Bay will close early so children can join their families to welcome the world champion Packers back home Monday afternoon.

Police have charted the motorcade course and will escort the team from the airport to Lambeau Field. A Return to Titletown celebration will be held Tuesday afternoon at Lambeau Field.

To get ready for that ceremony, the Packers are calling all shovelers. The team says as many as 450 people will be needed to clear stadium seating. The Packers say interested shovelers should show up at 8 a.m. Monday at the stadium's west side gate. The team will pay $8 an hour, but you must be 15.
