Scribe's Periodical

What is a Troop Scribe?
The scribe is the troop's secretary. Though not a voting member, he attends meetings of the patrol leaders' council and keeps a record of the discussions. He cooperates with the patrol scribes to record attendance and dues payments at troop meetings and to maintain troop advancement records.

This section is maintained by the T395's current scribe. The scribe position changes every 6 months after the Court of Honor, usually held in April & October. 

Troop Meeting of February 6th

posted Feb 13, 2020, 7:24 PM by Nicholas Ballew

Greetings from the strengthening Kite Man patrol! It is I, Daniel. I am a small human child and NOT two trench coats in a kid. I just have to clarify that now because some people started theorizing that I'm two trench coats in a kid for some unknown reason. Two trench coats in a kid? That's ridiculous! That would require two very clever trench coats. Have you ever seen a clever trench coat? Wait...wait no...oh no... Maybe the trench coats are too clever to let humans know that they're clever and there is an entire race of clever trench coats. Oh no! The trenchcoatpocolypse is upon us! This is very unfortunate.

This Monday, there will be an OA meeting at Imagine Chancellor Elementary School. If you are a member of the OA, be there or be square. I think you get access to the Minecraft realm if you become a square though, so choose between the ultimatums wisely.

As stated by Cameron and written down by me, Michael's haircut is epic.

Sign up for Peanut Island. There will be swimming, more swimming, fishing, possibly geocaching, sunburns, and maybe more! It will be from March 21st to the 24th.

Scout Sunday is this Sunday at 8:30 am. To clarify, for the profoundly confused, it is in fact not on a Wednesday.

This meeting, we got our camp cards. The council has decided to implement incentives. For every 25 camp cards you sell within a week, your name gets put in a district-wide "spin to win" to win...something? I don't know. The reward is not specified. During blitz weeks, if you sell over 25 camp cards, you are put into a special "spin to win" in which you could win a $75 Amazon gift card. Blitz weeks, which are not actually weeks, include March 6th-8th and April 3rd-5th. If you sell 25 camp cards in a week or during a blitz week, then tell Mr. Ken and he will put your name in.

This meeting, we learned about shotguns and threw tomahawks. Tape man was not there to be obliterated this time, but if he were, he would have experienced the phenomenon known as "overkill".

That's all for now! But remember, please ignore the army of slithering trench coats that may or may not follow me at a distance.

Students Organizing Cancer Krazy Socks, Inc.

posted Jan 8, 2018, 9:11 PM by Troop 395   [ updated Jan 8, 2018, 9:12 PM ]

S.O.C.K.S., Inc. is a nonprofit 501©(3) organization that collects aloe-infused, moisturizing and bright crazy socks. Why? Cancer is a silent killer.

   There will be approximately 1,658,370 new cancer patients diagnosed this year according to the American Cancer Society, in the United States alone. When first diagnosed with cancer the patient may be frightened, angry or in disbelief. While undergoing cancer treatments there is a vast array of emotions flowing through the patient, as well as their family and friends. The patients are scared, anxious and uncertain of how the treatment will affect them and their loved ones. We cannot make the cancer go away, but we can be there to assist patients with a comforting pair of socks or a fun pair of socks as they go through this difficult time. Hospital gowns are ugly, rooms are plain but who says your feet cannot be comfortable and funny in socks! Patient after patient, as well as the hospital staff have told us how much they appreciate their socks and well wishes. They have brightened their day and put a smile on their face. This is the goal of S.O.C.K.S., Inc to “PUT A SMILE ON THE FACE OF A CANCER PATIENT, one pair at a time.

2017/10/21 The ridunculous troop meeting that went down a couple of days ago

posted Nov 11, 2017, 5:28 PM by Troop 395   [ updated Nov 11, 2017, 5:32 PM ]

Hello and welcome to the not so spooky email that makes me wonder why I chose that as an introduction.

Unfortunately, the campout planned for October has been canceled because of the lack of people signed up. But don't get your peppermint in a twist! We still have a campout in November, SAW! If paid for by October 24th, you can still get the early bird price and only have to pay $47. That's practically free!

Popcorn sheets must be turned in by next Thursday to Mrs. Vicki. Refer to her email on how to turn in the money.

We just got some rank requirements signed off this meeting so there isn't much to talk about for this meeting's activities.

Anyways, have a great day and remember that nine plus ten does not equal twenty-one.

The Troop Meeting of Thursday, September 28th, 2017.


       Hello, this email is for people who were not able to attend this evening's meeting. But if you did attend, you can still read this. There is no mace-wielding troll to stop you.

       Due to the hurrication that was followed by hurricane Irma, the school decided to take back all of the teacher work days in the next few months. Since the Hillsborough River State Park campout was scheduled with the teacher work day, that will be canceled. A campout within a two hour driving distance may be in place of Hillsborough on that weekend but the campout has not been decided yet. If this campout does happen, it will be October 13-15.

      Popcorn season has started(although I'm not sure why I called it a season if it is only a month)! We have chocolate popcorn, we have caramel popcorn, we have excessively buttered popcorn! See Mrs. Thompson's email for the link to sign up genie to sign up for popcorn selling shifts.

      We were visited by the Korean War Veterans this evening. They told their stories about the war and answered questions. The Korean War is referred to as the forgotten war and is almost never referred to in school curriculums. They are trying to spread information about the forgotten war and make sure that history does not forget it.


That is all for now, but remember the forgotten...

2017/09/03 Meeting Recap

posted Sep 20, 2017, 6:42 PM by Troop 395

Hello people of the troop. I was trapped in the realm of the homework and these are the notes a little bird gave me. 

     Peanut Island campout is next week and if for some reason your health forms are still not turned in, you will not be able to attend. Stay tuned for any weather related updates. We will be camping at Hillsborough River State Park in October from the 13th to the 16th. 

     See Mr. Colter for blue cards from summer camp if you have not already gotten them. Or not. If you don't want the merit badge then completely ignore the first sentence of this paragraph.

     Please sign up for the vigil. You can sign up for two hour shifts or the whole night all together.

     The Spaghetti dinner is tonight. Please refer to Mr. Ken's email for directions. Class A uniform is required.

    That was it for announcements and there was a presentation about pollution and more fishing talk.

    That is all for now. But remember, 3.141592 is not pi. Pi has more digits.

Hello and welcome to the MEETING RECAP! BWA HA HA!

Some scouts put the scout sign at around 60 degrees. You are supposed to put at 90 degrees.

We are leaving for summer camp tomorrow at one o'clock. Make sure to bring closed toed shoes to summer camp. Make sure you have already had lunch before coming and have turned in your health forms.

At this meeting we did lashings for the gateway. Later this afternoon at Samule's house we will be finishing those. Please refer to his email for more information about that.

That is all for now, but remember, Toxin is the Symbiote spawn of Carnage.

2017/06/16 Meeting Recap

posted Jun 18, 2017, 7:24 PM by Troop 395   [ updated Jul 1, 2017, 5:38 AM ]

Here is a recap of Thursday's meeting.

Make sure to turn in your health forms before you go to summer camp. For provisional campers, Mr. Harlen Pierce will be your scoutmaster for the week, who is in the troop, now we have eyes everywhere. Zach and Brian will be gone for this week's meeting so Samuel will be the SPL for that meeting and someone will be ASPL(not completely sure who that someone is, but I'm 99% sure it isn't Super Man). We are also doing lashings next week so it may be a good idea to brush up on that if you don't know them all(It is definitely a good idea if you don't even know what they are all called).

At this meeting we did songs and skits, which are two very important things you need to know for summer camp. But I guess you don't really need to know any of the songs considering 92% of them or something like that are repeat-after-me songs. Well, you can study those, no one's going to stop you(unless for some odd reason it becomes illegal).

I believe that is all for now, but to all the fathers out there, happy father's day. Roll the outro! Or something...

2017/06/09 Meeting Recap

posted Jun 18, 2017, 7:22 PM by Troop 395   [ updated Jul 1, 2017, 5:39 AM ]

Hello Troop 395! Today I have a recap of Thursday's meeting.

For those who have not yet turned in health forms for summer camp, you can turn them in at the yearly planning meeting. You can also turn them in at the troop meetings unless you are going the first week of summer camp. The yearly planning meeting is in the Living Word Church from 1-6pm. It will be held in the room where we normally have PLCs. For those who don't know which room that is, it is the one at the end of the hall with the large table and rolling chairs with the door usually open. Anyone can come to the yearly planning meeting, not just leadership. Please come with campout, service, or meeting ideas. If not, then you can take notes and alert your patrol of what's ahead. Please wear class B to the yearly planning meeting.

For those of you who usually go to Mr. Colter for advancements, you only need to see him for a Scout Master Conference or blue card. If you had a conversation with him about advancements that can be explained to the ASM. You can use Mr. Colter as a witness if need be.

This meeting we went over how to pack for summer camp. If you want the list, then refer to Zack's email sent several hours ago. We also explained the swim test, which is needed to be passed for the swimming merit badge and First Class. This test goes as follows for those of you who want to practice before summer camp:
Jump in the pool feet first.
Complete three laps freestyle(which apparently isn't what you think freestyle would be. It's apparently an actual style of swimming).
Complete one lap using the back stroke.
Float until the director tells you to stop.

That's all for now. But remember, Spider-Man Homecoming will be released July 7th!
