Former Packers Versus Ripon Police In Kickoff Event For Willmore Center

Ripon College will use a basketball game as a kickoff event for the new Willmore Center. The game will feature a team of Ripon Police Officers and a team made of Green Packer alumni. Police Captain Bill Wallner says it is quite a facility and people will have a chance to check it out during the game Thursday at 7 p.m. at the center. The game also helps build a rapport between police and the community. Proceeds will benefit the Ripon Police Department’s annual National Night Out event next August. Packer alumni will include Bill Schroeder, Tony Fisher, Chris Frances, Dexter McNabb, and others. There will an autograph session following the game. Tickets are available through Ripon College and the Ripon Police Department.
