Welcome to Vernon Hills Patch!

What's Patch all about?

Welcome to Vernon Hills Patch!

I'm Korrina Grom, your local Vernon Hills editor! Let me tell you a little about myself. I've worked in community journalism for nearly 14 years. I worked in the print newspaper world before joining Patch as the editor of Lake Zurich in May 2011.

I recently became the editor of Libertyville Patch and will continue to manage that site along with Vernon Hills. I am really excited to be part of this community! Having lived in Lake County all of my life, I have spent a lot of time in Vernon Hills — especially at the mall. I'm sure you'll see me there sometimes or at my two other favorite hangouts — Target and Starbucks.

You should also know that I'm obsessed with weather. I'm a trained severe weather spotter and I have a weather radio, so if severe weather is headed our way, you can rest assured that you'll read about it on Vernon Hills Patch!

It is my job to cover what is most important to you. That may be the latest school news, upcoming business development or what great events are taking place at the Vernon Hills Park District.

In addition to the news I'll be covering, I will also be shining light on outstanding local organizations, businesses and individuals. And if you're trying to find something to do around town, look no further. My site also boasts a comprehensive events calendar. You can also add your own events.

But I also want to hear from you, residents of Vernon Hills. It is my goal to interact with you as much as possible.

Our Local Voices platform encourages you to share information and photos from your organization or just voice an opinion! We want this to be your site. Please, contribute!

If you are the owner of a local business, you can to add your own photos and follow updates.

On the site you can post your family's announcements, engagements, weddings, births and any upcoming events you think the community should know about. You can register for updates on Vernon Hills Patch and follow me on Facebook.

You can also use the site to post comments about stories or use it as a platform to interact with other community members.

So when you see me at events or run into me at Starbucks or Target, introduce yourself and say hello. I'd love to hear what matters to you most!
