“As a community, I feel it is important we look out for our neighbors all the time. This also aligns with the precept ‘Try to treat others as you would like to be treated’, from the Way to Happiness, a non-religious, non-political moral code based on common sense written by Scientology Founder, L. Ron Hubbard.”

“We want to bring our neighbors together to network, enjoy music and also support each other,” said Amber Skjelset, the Center Manager.

According to NationalDays.com, “National Good Neighbor Day is observed annually on September 28. This day was created to acknowledge and celebrate the importance of a good neighbor. It is a blessing to have a good neighbor but it is even a greater thing to BE a good neighbor.

“Good neighbors often become friends, they watch out for each other, lend a helping hand and are there for advice when asked. Neighbors are there when we need to borrow something, to get our mail for us when we are on vacation, to watch our homes and sometimes to watch our children and our pets as well as the many other things we do with our neighbors.”

The Scientology Information center is located at 500 Cleveland Street. To learn more about this facility or to find out about upcoming events please contact Amber at 727-467-6966 or amber@cos.flag.org
