Environmentalists Speak out about Earth Related Issues at Historic Bank of Clearwater for Earth Day

CLEARWATER, Fla., April 27, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- On April 22nd, environmental speakers, activists, and concerned citizens joined together to acknowledge those protecting the Earth and encouraged renewed efforts at the Earth Day reception held at the Historic Bank of Clearwater, Downtown Clearwater from 6-8pm.

Focusing on the issues of soil re-mineralization and water purity, Ms. Jay McFall and Mr. Winston Kao (both leaders in their fields) spoke to the attendees about the decline of these natural elements and its effect on one’s health. They also spoke of initiatives one can engage in to address these problems.

Ms. Tanya Cranton, Executive Director of the Way to Happiness Association Tampa Bay, shared the activities that their association has undertaken to safeguard and improve the environment.

“Our activities include regular community clean ups and beautification projects from cleaning the beach on World Environment day, to neighborhood clean-ups, and picking up litter on the Pinellas Trail,” stated Cranton, “We also work to educate the community of the importance of keeping the environment clean”.

The Way to Happiness, a non-religious, non-political, common sense guide written by Mr. L. Ron Hubbard, Humanitarian, Horticulturist, and founder of the Scientology Religion.

“The idea that one has a share in the planet and that one can and should help take care for it may seem very large and, to some, quite beyond reality,” wrote Mr. Hubbard, “But today what happens on the other side of the world, even so far away, can effect what happens in your own home.”

“The Earth Day Reception at the Historic Bank of Clearwater is the first of its kind at the Center, bringing together environmentally conscious individuals. The event provided a platform for collaboration,” said Center Manager, Amber Skjelset.

Since the center’s opening on July 11th 2015, the Center has welcomed some 8,000 visitors to the Information Center which provides a destination in Downtown Clearwater where anyone can visit and get their questions answered about Scientology and attend community events.

“There are hundreds of events happening all over the community in honor of protecting Earth,” stated Amber Skjelset, Manager of the Scientology Information Center, and the event’s emcee. “The Church of Scientology applauds these activities and especially recognizes those who work to protect it 365 days a year.”

Award-winning composer, filmmaker, and artist, Mr. Neal Fox entertained the guests with his original piano songs throughout the event.
