  • Added June 21, 2021: Calling all Merit Badge Counselors . . . (excerpt from GGAC eNews June 16, 2021):

    You may be at risk of being de-listed from the official list of Merit Badge Counselors. Council recently sent an email to all known Council Merit Badge Counselors inviting them to renew as counselors. For those not responding, their accreditation as MBCs will be cancelled at the end of June, and their names will no longer appear in Scoutbook as registered and trained counselors. If you wish to continue as a counselor, please respond. If you did not receive an email, first check your Junk Mail folder. Still nothing? Then contact MBC DEAN to resend the notice.

    Merit Badge Counselor Dean’s email: ronfedele@jazzyjelly.com
