Have any idea how to teach the Ten Commandments to a bunch of rowdy Boy Scouts? Just throw in a three-mile walk through Glendale, 10 churches and lunch, cooked and served by the Glendale Chapter of the Kiwanis.
Close to 80 Scouts participated in the third annual Ten Commandments Hike on Saturday. They gathered in the parking lot of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (the Mormons) in Glendale to register, offer a flag salute and a prayer. A welcome and introductions were handled by Scout leaders from the Verdugo Hills Council.
Hometown boys included Glendale residents Hunter Sandmeyer, 15, who gave the Pledge of Allegiance and Josh McGaughy, 14, who carried the flag on the first leg of the walk. Both Scouts are from Troop 303. Another Scout from Glendale, James Cuentas, 16, (Troup 139) has participated in the hike for all three years.
