I just received this great photo of the Manville Cub Scout Pack 191 from Charles Charneski. This particular photo was taken back in May of ’51. Being that I belonged to the very same cub scout pack over 30 years later, it brings me great joy to post this here. I don’t think I knew at the time, the long proud history of Manville’s Pack 191. For so many years, all the way through Boy Scouts I gained so much valuable knowledge, experience, and so many great times (and found salamanders) with the scouts. It’s something that I only just realized needs to be addressed on this blog. If there is anyone out there with knowledge of a complete history, or more photos I’d love for you to email me HERE

Thanks again to Charles Charneski & Richard Onderko for getting this over to me. And Mr. Rayot for teaching me how to start a fire and tie a square knot!

  1. wow its cool to see this ! i googled myself and this is what came up ! charles charneski was my grandfather ! i miss him dearly ! when i was i kid he used to scare me with a board with a nail in it!! (it was deserved! i was quite a handfull lol) i was named after my uncle andrew (he passed before i was born) my father was his brother reynold charneski. he is retired and doing good in deltona fl. i also have great memories of being a boy scout when i was young

  2. I am the Grandson Of Charles and Helen Charneski , I just found this site because My brother Andy told me about it. He was named after his Uncle Andy in the photo who Had died Shortly before his birth. I am very proud of my Grandparents and there willingness to use their free will. They were so generous and now I understand why I am the way I am.
