Christopher Handler said he received between 900 and 1,000 suggestions for the slogan he planned to paint on a fence that faced Lombardi Avenue.

But it was his own inspiration after giving blood to the Lakeland Chapter of the American Red Cross 10 days ago that prompted the Green Bay painter to go with “PACKER FANS BLEED GREEN and GOLD” on the fence owned by Shadow Lane resident Luke Ziolkowski.

“Thinking about what the Red Cross does and the fact that today the focal point is on 9/11, it seemed like a good idea to emphasize something about helping others,” Handler said Saturday as he prepared to paint the fence. “Everyone can win by giving blood.”
