Marguerite "Mugs" Bachhuber is the 20th member of the Packers FAN Hall of Fame, and she had help from a famous relative to get there.
The 87-year-old Ashwaubenon resident accepted the honor during a ceremony at Lambeau Field Tuesday.
Mugs' name will be on display for eternity at the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame.
Mugs also gets four club seats to a 2018 Packers home game; a $500 Packers Pro Shop gift certificate; a road trip for two to a 2018 Packers away game; and a one-year subscription to Packers Plus.
Mugs was among 10 finalists for the ultimate Green Bay Packers fan. She was chosen through a combination of fan votes, past honoree votes, and Packers committee votes.
Bachhuber has been a life-long Packers fan. She's spent most of her adult life collecting Packers treasures.
