Police officers enjoy free meal in Wauconda
Police officers from throughout Lake County enjoyed a free meal Wednesday night in Wauconda, courtesy of a high school club. The Wauconda High School Future Business Leaders of America group hosted the event. It was a special version of their monthly Meals for All program, which offers $1 dinners to community members at the local American Legion Hall.
The club decided to make free meals for suburban cops as a show of support, in light of the criticism police officers have been facing across the nation.
Officers from Wauconda, Tower Lakes, Antioch, Buffalo Grove and the Lake County sheriff's office were among those who attended the dinner, which was publicized by the students and the Wauconda Police Department.
