Sports legend Jerry Kramer is back in town later this month for a night of reflection on a dramatic career.

Jerry Kramer.

Sponsored by Sandpoint Area Seniors, Inc., and set for May 22, “Memories of a Legend with Jerry Kramer” will be a night sports fans won’t want to miss. Kramer will share the details of his 11-year career with the Green Bay Packers that earned two Super Bowl championships and paved the way for his induction into the NFL Hall of Fame last year.

General admission for the event costs $8 and includes a poster. However, a $55 VIP package will open access to a pre-event reception with Kramer himself. The package also includes appetizers, beer or wine, an autographed mini football, a collectible poster and reserved seating.

The pre-event meet and greet starts 5:30 p.m. at the Panida Little Theater, with doors opening at 5 p.m. The Panida main doors open at 6:30 p.m., and the speaker event begins 7 p.m. Tickets are available at Sandpoint Area Senior Center, online at or at the door if any remain. However, event organizers predict tickets will go fast and advise residents to pick them up early.
