The Scientology Information Center Hosts Its First High-Tea and Educational Tour

​The Scientology Information Center was honored to host fourteen women from a local ladies society for its first High-Tea since opening in July 2015. It was hosted in the historic Clearwater building and was followed by a tour of some of the humanitarian program centers which the Church of Scientology supports.

During the event the ladies enjoyed a selection of teas, fresh-baked scones with fruit jams and cookies. There they had a chance to catch up, socialize and make plans for future group events and outings.

"We really enjoyed ourselves, the food was great and we had the opportunity to learn about interesting programs that are helping the community."


They also had an opportunity to learn about Mr. L. Ron Hubbard’s life. Mr. Hubbard is the Founder of Scientology and his areas of expertise also included writing, photography, sailing and flying. One guest commented “He lived an extraordinary life. It’s amazing that he did so much in one life!”

After the High Tea, just steps from the Scientology Information Center, the women visited United for Human Rights, Foundation for a Drug-Free World and The Way to Happiness centers. There they were introduced to the programs which provide solutions and tools used by drug prevention educators, school resource officers, human trafficking watch groups, and mentoring programs. These tools assist the community in addressing societal ills such as drug and human rights abuses and immorality.

The women each received copies of the Truth About Drugs booklets which provide documented information on the short-term and long-term effects of street drugs, the Youth for Human Rights booklets which educate youth about their 30 rights, and other complimentary information about the church sponsored programs. One woman decided to give the drug booklets she received to her grandchild. One guest summed up their experience stating, “We really enjoyed ourselves, the food was great and we had the opportunity to learn about interesting programs that are helping the community.” 

“We welcome visitors from all social, educational or religious groups to visit,” stated Amber Skjelset, the Manager for the Scientology Information Center.

The Scientology Information Center offers guests the opportunity to peruse 4 audio-visual informational displays covering basic Scientology concepts, as well as a full biographical display on the life and legacy of L. Ron Hubbard, Scientology’s Founder.  The interactive displays feature nearly 300 videos, all of which can be viewed in 17 languages, with subtitles for the hearing impaired. It is open every day from 10am-10pm.
