A hike for support

Boy Scouts from Cub Scout Pack 1203 and Scout Troop 1203 celebrate Veterans Day on Wednesday with a hike to show their support for the many veterans in the community. In spite of the rain, girls and boys ages 4 to 14 were in full uniform waving flags throughout the 3-mile route. While there was no official parade, the well organized “hike” was well attended and received. Parents and children came out to watch them pass by, while residents waved back and honked their horns in support. “We wanted to have a parade,” Gabriel Krasnesky, 7, said, adding “it’s fun and people liked it.” The boys and girls of Cub Scout Pack and Scout Troop 1203 are sponsored by the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2632 in California.
