Bay View Earns Packers Character Playbook Grant 

Students Cleaning Cemetery

Bay View’s Apollo House was awarded a $500 Packers Character Playbook Grant to aid in its Suamico Cemetery spring clean-up in preparation for Memorial Day. 

Led by Candice Perz, Apollo House teacher, approximately 110 students, and teachers will be bussed to Suamico Cemetery where Mike Sheedy, former Bay Port custodian and community leader, will teach about cemetery etiquette and respect. While there, students and staff will rake, plant flowers, and place American Flags by veterans’ graves. 

The $500 grant from the Green Bay Packers and Brown County United Way will purchase two signs to place in the cemetery denoting that Apollo House led the clean-up efforts, t-shirts to identify the volunteers and their service project, and snacks to fuel the students on the clean-up day.
