The Board of Directors of Division 7 approves funding, enabling our Community Service Team to continue donating books on various model railroading subjects to Greater Cincinnati area libraries. This has been a continuing program to make model railroading reference materials available to the public. Since 2000, more than 520 books have been donated to libraries in Ohio-Indiana-Kentucky through this program, enabling more people to have access to "how-to" publications about the subject of model railroading.
Division 7 will no longer directly support the Merit Badge program, but individual members are encouraged to volunteer directly with the local BSA council if they are interested in being MB counselors.
From 1992 to 2020, a few dedicated volunteers from Division 7 served as Merit Badge Counselors for the Railroading Merit Badge, as part of annual Merit Badge Fairs conducted by the Boy Scout Council at both Fairfield and Sycamore High Schools. The NMRA is no longer organizing, leading or coordinating these activities. We encourage those wishing to independently help to approach the Boy Scout leadership and volunteer your services accordingly.
