CLEARWATER, Fla. - Sept. 23, 2020 - PRLog -- The International Day of Friendship was designated by the United Nations General Assembly (UN). First becoming popular in the United States in 2011, International Day of Friendship encourages people to connect and build bridges among cultures, countries, and even ideologies.

        "Though celebrated annually on July 30th, the pandemic guest limitations put off our celebration here," said Amber Skjelset, Manager of the Scientology Information Center.

        Studies have shown the therapeutic value of social interaction and that support from loved ones plays a great deal in one's physical and mental health.

         "Social relationships—both quantity and quality—affect mental health, health behavior, physical health, and mortality risk. Sociologists have played a central role in establishing the link between social relationships and health outcomes, identifying explanations for this link, and discovering social variation (e.g., by gender and race) at the population level."

        "People are going through a lot during these times. A friend is someone you can trust, who you can open up to and whom you enjoy doing things with," said Skjelset. "Now, more than ever, friends should be treasured. They deserve to be honored more than one day a year. To help acknowledge friendships, we'd like to extend our hospitality by offering a complimentary cup of tea and cookies to groups of friends (no more than eight at a time) to 'take a load off' at the Scientology Information Center. Just contact us and let us know when works best for you!"

        "Humanitarian and Scientology founder, L. Ron Hubbard once said about the value of friends, 'A man is as rich as he has friends…' and we want to demonstrate that here," added Skjelset.

        Masks are required indoors and are provided complimentary along with travel-sized bottles of hand sanitizer.

         For those visitors also curious about the Scientology religion, Churches of Scientology or its Founder, Mr. L. Ron Hubbard they are welcome to take a self-guided tour through the information panels in the Center's grand lobby covering some 400 videos in the historic building.
