CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, US, December 14, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — On December 8, 2019 the Church of Scientology held their annual Holiday Community Brunch in the auditorium of the Fort Harrison to celebrate the holiday season. Over 550 community partners, friends, vendors, local charities and local filmmakers enjoyed the buffet and desserts prepared by Fort Harrison chefs along with live entertainment performed by the Church’s Flag Band.
“Because we do our annual dance in the auditorium in February, we heard about the Community Brunch 15 to 20 years ago,” said Kathy Iatropoulos, one of the many members of the Laconian (Greek) Society, in attendance. She described the brunch in one word: “Excellent.”
For almost 20 years the Church of Scientology has hosted the Holiday Community Brunch in its international religious retreat, the Fort Harrison, in keeping with the historic building’s tradition of opening its doors to the community since 1926.
Tampa resident Toni McCloud told Freedom, what she likes most about the brunch, “Everyone here is always so friendly.” She added, “I remember when we came last year we saw some old friends we hadn’t seen them for quite a while—that made our day.”
Lisa Mansell, the Public Affairs Officer for the Church of Scientology thanked all of those in attendance for their friendship, and shared with them the sentiments of a letter which Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard wrote to his friends in late 1981, “‘Good luck in this year that is coming. It is a year that is in your hands. I have every confidence you will do well in it,’” she read. In closing she wished everyone, “Happy holidays from the staff and executives of the Church of Scientology Flag Service Organization!”
