The Girls on the Run morning groups worked together to give back to the Vernon Hills community and the police officers that protect our residents.  The girls made thank you cards and chocolate covered pretzels to thank the Vernon Hills police force for all the hard work they  do in our community.  On Tuesday, May 14, 2013 the Vernon Hills Police Department came to Elementary South to meet the girls.  The girls were ecstatic to give back to the community and meet some of the brave police officers that protect them day-to-day.
