A special Labor Day Monday Morning “Shout Out” to Milton resident Nancy Vaughn (back row, center) and her Girl Power running club. Nancy started the running club as a way for adolescent girls to learn to set and achieve goals. She started with just three girls and now has over 80! Girl Power was one on eight community groups to receive a BID-Milton Community Health grant. Great job, Nancy, and keep on running girls!
