Scientology Info Center Delivers Talk on Scientology & Tour of the Fort Harrison to College Students
On Sat. Nov. 23rd, students and guests from a religious studies class at St. Pete College's Clearwater Campus visited the Scientology Info Center in downtown Clearwater for a talk about Scientology and tour of the Fort Harrison.

The students then attended the Fort Harrison tour where they learned that: the iconic building was built during Clearwater's land boom in the 1920s; visited the "palatial" 11th floor Penthouse where the Rolling Stones once stayed in 1965; and learned how the Fort Harrison was Pinellas County's first skyscraper.
In addition to visiting the Fort Harrison's well-appointed spaces, guests learned how the Church partners with local non-profits providing support to their causes by sponsoring their events. This assists registered 501c3s to retain 100% of the funds they raise to further their charitable causes.
One guest and long-term resident said after the experience, "I've lived in Clearwater since the '70s and I learned a lot of things about Scientology that I didn't know. I enjoyed finding out the commonality of all religions. I'm really glad I came and got to see inside the Fort Harrison as I saw it in the '70s. I can't wait to go back and tell everyone about this."
The Scientology Information Center is open daily from 10am-10pm for self-guided tours. Group presentations and similar tours for the community can be scheduled at the Center by contacting the Manager, Ms. Amber Skjelset, at 727-467-6966 or e-mail email@example.com.
