Tree cut for Lambeau Field


GREEN BAY (WKOW) -- Lambeau Field has the centerpiece for its upcoming Festival of Lights.

The Packers cut down a 36-foot tall blue spruce from the yard of Margaret Van Deurzen Monday.

Van Deurzen says she's a life-long Packers fan.

She says she's ecstatic her tree was picked.

Everyone I know since my childhood knows about this.  I am pathetically and ridiculously proud to have my tree up at Lambeau Field."

The tree will be lit Saturday as part of the festival.

As a thank you for her donation, Van Deurzen received four tickets to the Packers-Steelers game on December 22.
