Clearwater Community Volunteers Center Combines the Pleasure of Music with Philanthropy for Foster Kids

The CCV Center, in partnership with CBA Tampa Bay, is hosting a fundraising concert with international performer Judy Bachar, pictured above. Proceeds from the concert will buy school supplies for Pinellas County foster children.

Studies have shown that children with their own school supplies improve their attitudes towards learning as they are not dealing with the stress of feeling left out or ‘less-than’ other students.”

— Lynn Posyton, Community Relations Dir, CBA Tampa Bay

CLEARWATER, FL, US, June 26, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Hundreds of Pinellas County youth will be able to take one more step toward school readiness on Sunday June 30th when the Clearwater Community Volunteers (CCV) Center, in partnership with the Concerned Businessmen’s Association of Tampa Bay, will host a fundraising concert at their downtown Clearwater Center. The concert features international vocalist, Judy Bechar. There is no cost to attend but guests are encouraged to buy tickets for prize drawings. Proceeds will purchase school supplies for the foster kids as part of the CCV Center’s “Back-2-School” drive which will end in a final event on July 27th.

Ms. Bechar, from Israel, sings in six different languages including French and Russian. In a strong, enchanting voice, she delivers the music of cultures from all over the world – opera, jazz, country and more.

“With Ms. Bechar’s help we will be able to provide foster children with the school supplies they will need this year”, said Lynn Posyton, Community Relations Director of the Concerned Businessmen’s Association of Tampa Bay. “Studies have shown that children with their own school supplies improve their attitudes towards learning as they are not dealing with the stress of feeling left out or ‘less-than’ other students.”

“Children are our society’s tomorrow.” said Michael Soltero, Manager of the CCV Center. “Unfortunately, not every child is afforded the supplies that he or she needs to start school. Humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard wrote ‘Today’s children will become tomorrow’s civilization. Children can’t handle their environment and they have no real resources. They need love and help to make it.”

Additional artists from the community are welcome to perform family-friendly music after Ms. Bechar’s performances.

To RSVP for the event or reserve the center for your nonprofit’s activities, call (727) 316-5309 or email ccvcenter@ccvfl.org. Visitors are also invited to tour the center at 133 N. Fort Harrison, Clearwater, FL 33755.

Stress Relief The Modern Way: Articles That Use Humor, Connections, and Personal Reflection to Boost Your Mental Health

Stress relief through peer support at Supportiv, The Support Network

Supportiv, the peer support network for getting stuff off your chest anonymously, announces its latest article collection for relieving stress.

We wanted to create resources that help people see reflections of their own struggles in others – to show how helpful it is to not feel alone.”

— Pouria Mojabi, Co-Founder, Supportiv

BERKELEY, CA, USA, June 26, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Supportiv, the peer support network that matches users into real-time, topic-specific peer groups for anonymous peer support on any life struggle –from anxiety to burnout, childhood issues to daily life struggles– announces its latest article collection, sharing modern perspectives and crowdsourced tips to relieve all kinds of stress.

Helena Plater-Zyberk, Supportiv Co-Founder, discusses a large root cause of stress: “Stress accumulates easily when we ignore parts of our lives or ourselves. Holding in emotions allows them to build on each other. So when we stop addressing personal sources of stress, we invite feelings like depression, anxiety, or burnout.”

Pouria Mojabi, Co-Founder, continues: “On the other hand, when we see our struggles in a relatable, funny, or at least manageable light, we can grapple with them more effectively. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed and shut down when you think your problems are unusual or unstoppable. So we wanted to create resources that help people see reflections of their own struggles in others – to show how helpful it is to not feel alone.”

Whether it’s learning self-management skills to keep on top of daily life, how to connect more authentically with others, or how to use your emotions to feel better, you’ll find tools in this collection to relieve stress and feel a little better about life.

DECLARACIÓN DE WORLD BUDDHISM ASSOCIATION HEADQUARTERS

H.H Dorje Chang Buda III

UN BUDA VERDADERAMENTE RECONOCIDO COMO TAL DE ACUERDO CON EL DHARMA

LA CARTA ORIGINAL DE INTERPOL

FOTO 1: La carta original de INTERPOL

 INTERPOL

FOTO 2: La traducción de la carta enviada por INTERPOL

LOS ÁNGELES, CALIFORNIA, ESTADOS UNIDOS, June 25, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ —

Para que el público realmente entienda a World Buddhism Association Headquarters y a H.H. Dorje Chang Buda III, World Buddhism Association Headquarters expresa especialmente lo siguiente:

1. En World Buddhism Association Headquarters asumiremos toda la responsabilidad legal por la veracidad de esta declaración.

2. H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III es un verdadero Buda que ha sido reconocido por los líderes, reyes regente dharma y rinpoches de varias sectas budistas en todo el mundo de acuerdo con el sistema de reconocimiento budista de más de 1,000 años. Su Santidad el Buda es también el único en la historia del budismo quien ha recibido tantos reconocimientos. El estado reconocido no era el de un rinpoche; más bien, era de un Buda. En el budismo, no existe gran Bodhisattva, gran patriarca o gran rey del dharma superior al Buda. El Buda es el líder supremo de todo en budismo. Además, los logros de H.H. Dorje Chang Buda III en el Cinco Vidyas son perfectamente cumplidos sin precedentes en la historia del budismo. No hay santos anteriores con los logros comparables a los de H.H. Dorje Chang Buda III. Los logros de H.H. Dorje Chang Buda III sobrepasaron los requisitos prescritos por Namo Sakyamuni Buda en los sutras. Un Buda no tiene la perspectiva de un patriarca de una determinada secta o escuela, más bien, un Buda tiene la perspectiva de la totalidad de budismo, tal como lo hizo Namo Sakyamuni Buda. ¡El Buda es el líder más alto sobre quien todos los budistas confían y de quien aprenden!

3. Anteriormente, cuando H.H. Dorje Chang Buda III todavía estaba en China, fue perseguido por algunos agentes de seguridad pública porque difundió las enseñanzas del budismo y defendió la justicia. Como parte de la persecución, los agentes de seguridad pública china malversaron una gran cantidad de pinturas y obras caligráficas creadas por H.H. Dorje Chang Buda III. Además, inventaron un caso de fraude en contra H.H. Dorje Chang Buda III, haciendo afirmaciones sin fundamentos que involucran a Liu Juan y Lau Pak Hun. Luego informaron el caso a International Criminal Police Organization (INTERPOL), solicitando una orden de arresto en contra H.H. Dorje Chang Buda III. Sin embargo, después de una investigación detallada y realizada por la INTERPOL, los hechos demostraron que el caso reportado por la Oficina de Seguridad Pública en Shenzhen, Guangdong fue fabricado y que en hecho H.H. Dorje Chang Buda III no había cometido ningún fraude, ni de palabra ni de hecho. Sobre esa base, en la 72.ª reunión de la Comisión para el Control de los Archivos de la INTERPOL celebrada en octubre de 2008, INTERPOL decidió cancelar la orden de arresto en contra H.H. Dorje Chang Buda III. También, durante este tiempo, China descubrió a través de la investigación que en la realidad H.H. Dorje Chang Buda III no cometió ningún delito. Por lo tanto, el 11 de junio de 2008, por iniciativa propia, China solicitó a la INTERPOL que retire la orden de arresto en contra H.H. Dorje Chang Buda III. En el 19 de noviembre de 2009, INTERPOL envió una carta especial al H.H. Dorje Chang Buda III explicando el proceso completo. Para más detalles, favor de consultar la carta de la INTERPOL enviada al H.H. Dorje Chang Buda III.

4. Con respecto a los reconocimientos del estado del H.H. Dorje Chang Buda III, la carta de la INTERPOL, las evidencias de que H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III fue perseguido, u otra información, favor de visitar el sitio web: https://ibsahq.org/buddha-en. Nosotros en World Buddhism Association Headquarters seguimos las enseñanzas del H.H. Dorje Chang Buda III y Namo Sakyamuni Buda como nuestra fundación, guiando a los budistas de todo el mundo para aprender y practicar el Buda-dharma para que se conviertan en buenas personas que son altruistas, benévolas y respetuosas de la ley, que contribuyen a la sociedad y que tengan felices vidas familiares, y que finalmente se den cuenta de la verdadera talidad de la naturaleza de dharma y lograr la liberación.

Scientology Volunteer Ministers Florida Doing Something About the Drug Crisis

Jason Good explains to attendees of drug seminar at the Scientology Volunteer Ministers Center in downtown Clearwater what is really fueling the drug crisis, how he escaped from this and what really helps drug addicts.

Families are destroyed by the scourge of drug addiction. Therefore, we feel it is important to educate our communities as to exactly what drugs are, and what can be done to handle drug addiction.”

— Glendy Goodsell, ED Scientology Volunteer Ministers Florida

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, US, June 25, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Scientology Volunteer Ministers Center in downtown Clearwater held an “Answers to Drugs” seminar on June 11th. Hosted by Jason Good, a staff member of a drug abuse treatment center that uses technology developed by Scientology founder, L. Ron Hubbard, the seminar took up the subject of drugs from the most basic information — what drugs are, all the way up to how the most severe addicts are helped to recover and rebuild their lives.

The seminar also featured Rev. Dr. Basha P. Jordan Jr., founder of Hope 4 U Outreach. Dr. Jordan’s mission is to offer hope to all who are in need, especially those who are victims of drug addiction. Dr. Jordan talked about his work, but also his journey of recovery. He was a drug addict for 30 years but has been clean since October 13, 1988. Since then, Dr. Jordan has been working diligently to save the lives of addicts and restore broken families.

“Families are destroyed by the scourge of drug addiction,” said Glendy Goodsell, Executive Director of the Scientology Volunteer Minister Center in downtown Clearwater. “Therefore, we feel it is important to educate our communities as to exactly what drugs are, and what can be done to handle drug addiction.”

Good included data from the booklet “Answers to Drugs”, which is also a chapter in the Scientology Handbook. This includes information about how to help someone withdraw from drugs safely which is done in conjunction with medical treatment as needed. The information is also available in a free online course at www.volunteerministers.org/solutions

Scientology Volunteer Ministers:

The Scientology Volunteer Minister (VM) program was launched more than thirty years ago, in response to an appeal by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard. Noting a tremendous downturn in the level of ethics and morality in society, and a consequent increase in drugs and crime, Mr. Hubbard wrote, “If one does not like the crime, cruelty, injustice and violence of this society, he can do something about it. He can become a VOLUNTEER MINISTER and help civilize it, bring it conscience and kindness and love and freedom from travail by instilling into it trust, decency, honesty and tolerance.” The program has adopted the slogan: “Something Can Be Done About It”. At the Scientology Volunteer Ministers center in downtown Clearwater, VMs are trained in the 19 chapters of the Scientology Handbook, basic first aid and safety techniques.

Best-Selling Documentary – The Long Goodbye: The Kara Tippetts Story – Launches on Netflix

The Long Goodbye Netflix Artwork

Kara Tippetts and Joanna Gaines

Kara Tippetts and The Long Goodbye

The Long Goodbye shares the heartfelt, hope-filled story of a young woman thrust into the national spotlight after a terminal cancer diagnosis

I want more of what Kara Tippetts had.”

— Ann Voskamp

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, June 24, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — THE LONG GOODBYE: The Kara Tippetts Story, a heartfelt story a woman thrust into the national spotlight through a terminal cancer diagnosis, is available now on Netflix. The film spent time at the #1 spot on the Amazon Documentaries chart and remained in the Top 10 for over 6 weeks after it’s release.

Kara Tippetts was a pastor’s wife, mother of four young children, and creator of a popular mommy-blog focused on parenting with kindness. Kara already had a loyal following when, at just 38 years old, she began facing and processing a cancer diagnosis on the site. Her blog and subsequent best-selling books became hallowed ground as people around the world were touched by her faith, honesty, and candor.

With this incredibly raw documentary, Kara allowed the world to walk with her as she chronicled first what it meant to be a young wife and mother battling a disease, and then ultimately what it meant to live and die with love and dignity.

Shot in real-time and featuring Kara’s own vlogs and cell phone videos, this film offers an intimate, vulnerable look into a dying woman’s last days. The film also features Kara’s friends-including Ann Voskamp, Joanna Gaines, Ellie Holcomb, President of Focus on the Family Jim Daly, Dianne Derby from KKTV, and bonus features with Joni Eareckson Tada.

During her journey with cancer, Kara wrote and published three books, including Just Show Up: The Dance of Walking Through Suffering Together; And It was Beautiful: Celebrating Life in the Midst of the Long Good-Bye; and The Hardest Peace: Expecting Grace in the Midst of Life’s Hard, which won the 2015 ECPA Inspirational Book of the Year award.

Additionally, Kara was thrust into the spotlight when a letter she penned to Brittany Maynard went viral. In the letter, Kara asked Brittany to reconsider her choice to move to Oregon to participate in an assisted suicide. Kara’s was a gentle, hope-filled message that could only be shared between two young women whose lives would end too soon.

Kara’s vulnerability had an incredible impact on tens of thousands of people and grew that community of support in surprising ways. Faith influencers from around the globe began to find ways to assist Kara by sharing her posts, sending personal messages, serving the family’s needs, as well as just becoming her friend.

When asked about Kara’s impact, influencers featured in the film stated:

“The impact of her life was huge. I’m blessed to know her.” – Joanna Gaines

“I want more of what Kara Tippetts had.” – Ann Voskamp,

“Sharing this time with her family was nothing short of a holy experience.” – Sofia Lyons, filmmaker.

“I think Kara and I both understand that deep suffering stretches the capacity of the soul.” – Joni Eareckson Tada

This included filmmakers Jay and Sofia Lyons, who discovered Kara’s story through a Facebook note from a friend. The couple simply felt led to do something for her. Sofia states how God led them down a path to create the film by a series of ‘breadcrumbs’, “First, we just wanted to do something special for Kara and her family. This evolved into creating a 7-minute video about her life, which ultimately opened up a conversation about fully documenting her last few months on earth.”

THE LONG GOODBYE also showcases footage from a house concert performed by Ellie Holcomb, a new arrangement of one of Kara’s favorite hymns by Selah, and an original song by Travis Cottrell. Additionally, one of the filmmakers, Sofia J., contributes 2 original songs written for the film including “I’ll See You Again.”

NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK, USA, June 21, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. v. Elm 3DS Innovations, LLC, Appeal Nos. 2017-2474 et al (Fed. Cir. June 12, 2019)
In this proceeding involving 11 related patents and 105 patent claims, the Federal Circuit affirmed the Patent Trial & Appeal Board’s (PTAB) and ruled in favor of the patent owner, not Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd.

Many American Citizens Have Been Taking Action with The United States Patent and Trademark Office To Protect Patents, Trademarks & Other Intellectual Property. Do you know if anyone currently is undermining your Trademark name to cause Genericide?

Another loss to Samsung – Use of Hope for Children – Cancelled by United States Patent and Trademark Office, Trademark Trial and Appeal Board

Patricia Kirby Rasmussen is the Co-Founder of Hope for Children Foundation and said, “Hope for Children Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit children's charity organization founded for the prevention of cruelty to children, prevailed in its lawsuit against Samsung Electronics Co, Ltd. Cancellation Number 9205811 in the United States Patent and Trademark Office, Trademark Trial and Appeal Board. The U.S. Trademark Registration Number 5,409,810 was awarded to Hope for Children Foundation.” Samsung, is a Korean-based company, and temporarily used part of its name Hope for Children, as part of an overall marketing scheme in New York.

Hope for Children Foundation, reclaimed its name in the Trademark Office in an Order. Mrs. Rasmussen stated, “The U.S. Trademark Appeals Board Order concluded: The petition for cancellation is sustained on the ground of likelihood of confusion in connection with Respondent’s International Class 36 services. Hope for Children Foundation, is steadfast in its resolve to defend its name, mission and purpose in the face of all unjust opposition.”

Patricia explained, “The unfortunate four-year battle against Samsung expended much of our time and resources. Shortly after Hope for Children Foundation prevailed in the U. S. Trademark Trial and Appeal Board Office, attacks continued against Hope for Children Foundation. Several other entities are tricking the public by advertising and using our name, raising funds without our permission, and keeping the funds. Despite these wrongful actions, today’s announcement of good news is gladly shared with all Americans, Hope for Children Foundation Trademark Registration Number 5,731,137, and Hope for Children Registration Number 5,731,475, were certified through the United States Patent and Trademark Office April 23, 2019, in addition to the original Trademark Registration 5,409,810 of Hope for Children Foundation.

Attorneys John Cone and his wife, Diana Cone graciously and tenaciously showed courage, strength in knowledge and bravery throughout the four years of litigation representing Hope for Children Foundation, we proudly thank them for their continuous support. John and Diana Cone were extremely courageous with undertaking this long tedious battle. The legal filing should not have taken as long as it did, although Samsung pursued one scheme after another in their attempts to financially bully Hope for Children Foundation, and sidetrack the U.S. Trademark Appeals Board. Thank you so very much John and Diana for all that you did, well done! We are very grateful.”

Patricia also stated, “We want to applaud John and Diana Cone for their courage to stand up against Samsung for the past several years, refusing to allow Samsung to bully them. Courage is something that everybody wants; it makes us worthy of respect. We encourage everyone to stand strong with courage to help overcome obstacles that may unjustly cross your path.”

“From the Bible to fairy tales, ancient myths to Hollywood movies, our culture is rich with tales of bravery and self-sacrifice for a greater cause. What about activists like Martin Luther King, or Mother Teresa, or entrepreneurs such as Walt Disney or Steve Jobs, those with a vison and who took great financial risks to follow their dreams? We need your help and support to make our dreams reality for the betterment of mankind, and the future of our nation’s sons and daughters. The famous music maker and singer, Beatle – John Lennon, stated it nicely with meaning, “A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality.”

Patricia explained, “It is our dreams we share with you today. Dreams with hope and desire to become reality. Our 501c3 is a top-rated charity, created on April 2, 1998 to aid sexually and physically abused children, adults and their protectors. Child Abuse has been declared a National Emergency, by Health and Human Services several times in the past, but the President of the United States is the only one who can truly declare such an emergency. We would like to plead with you to write the President, requesting him to acknowledge child abuse as a National Emergency in America. We have heard that he cares for children. Would this not be a loud and clear message for him to prove this to our nation?”

Every year more than 3.6 million referrals are made to child protection agencies involving more than 6.6 million children in the United States. Patricia stated, “Together, with your support, child abuse issues can be brought to the attention of tens of thousands more stakeholders who have the capacity to work together toward protecting all children in this nation. By standing up for children, and supporting this request, you join with investigative priorities of our nations FBI.

Patricia challenges you to have courage and stated, “Reach out to us and join other courageous souls who fight this insidious battle. Please go to our Website and learn more about how you can become more significant by sponsoring a child:” https://hopeforchildrenfoundation.org/sponsor-child/

Jews of NYC to Protest Forced Drafting of Girls in Israel

Jews Protesting at Israeli Military Court in Jaffa

Stop forcing Jews into the Zionist Army

Orthodox Jews to protest Friday Jun 19, at 1PM, at the Israeli Consulate 800 2nd Av. NYC, followed by march to the offices of Friends of the IDF 60 E 42nd St

The Israeli government’s primary motive with the current forced conscription laws is to assimilate religious Jews into their culture and society”

— Rabbi Hershel Klar

NEW YORK CITY, NY, USA, June 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Orthodox Jews will hold a public protest outside the Israeli Consulate at 800 Second Avenue, NYC, followed by a march to the offices of the Friends of the Israel Defense Force, 60 E. 42nd St, this Friday June 19, 2019 at 1 PM, in response to recent escalation of the drafting of girls into the Israeli army and the recent arrest of 3 women activists for providing legal advice to girls facing military draft.

Since 2013, the Israeli government has instructed its army to do everything in its power to increase the enlistment of religious Jewish girls. According to Jewish religious law, Jews may not serve in the Israeli army. For girls especially, the draft is seen as an effort to uproot the religious beliefs and lifestyle of the Jewish community.

Originally the Israeli government exempted any girl who sent in an affidavit declaring that she observed the basics of Jewish law. The army still officially exempts religious girls, but they are taking steps to draft them by finding flaws in their paperwork, or by subjecting them to harsh interrogation with the goal of claiming that they are not sufficiently religious.

The Israeli government is currently using its military as a tool to uproot religion from the Orthodox community. But even if the army was a religious environment, and even if they did not draft girls, Judaism teaches that Jews must remain in exile until the coming of the messiah, pray for the wellbeing of their host countries and not rebel against any nation. Therefore the existence of the State of Israel and all wars it fights are forbidden.

Those who are drafted but refuse to serve due to their beliefs are treated brutally, imprisoned or subjected to other harsh penalties. Peaceful demonstrators, who protest publicly against the government’s policy, are being met with extreme force, dispersed by inhumane means, such as horse trampling, water cannons and stun grenades, causing bodily injuries to men, women and children.

‘Chomosayich’ is a support organization for those Jewish youth of the community who wish to avoid the draft. The organization set up a watch-guard team to stand outside the IDF recruitment office to monitor and protect the religious youth who enter the building to request their exemptions from serving in the army. Their purpose is to inform young people of their legal rights and shield them from arrest and imprisonment in the event that they do not obtain an exemption. The volunteers of Chomosayich stand at their posts all year round, leaving behind their family obligations, undeterred by the fierce sun and cold rains.

On Sunday, June 16, 2019, three women volunteers of Chomosayich were handcuffed and arrested by Israeli police and interrogated as to who is sending them to stand there. After fierce protests in the streets of Jerusalem, they were released, but banned from coming near the recruitment office for fifteen days. The police seek to ban their standing there for a longer period of time, though they have violated no law.

It should be noted that the State of Israel is one of only three countries in the world with compulsory army service for girls.

“Jews follow the Torah, serve G-d and are loyal citizens of the countries where they reside,” said Rabbi Hershel Klar, an organizer for the demonstration. “That is indeed how Jews have lived historically during many centuries, including in the Holy Land prior to Zionism. Zionism is a new, heretical movement that attempts to replace religion with nationalism and, in effect, destroys Jewish belief and practice. The Israeli army and the wars it carries out are violations of the Jewish religion.The Israeli government’s primary motive with the current forced conscription laws is to assimilate religious Jews into their culture and society. As
David Ben-Gurion, the first Israeli Prime Minister described the army as the “melting pot” of Israeli society.

“That’s why they are putting so much effort into drafting religious boys and girls. They use the girls to help meet their recruitment quotas. It started a few years ago with a small number of girls they claimed were not actually religious, but now thousands have been drafted (2,700 girls in 2018 alone). Just last week, they arrested and brutally jailed four girls refusing to enlist, one of whom already enlisted earlier but deserted the army when she couldn’t tolerate the army environment. This week, they arrested three women who have committed no crime, only helped advise girls of their legal rights.

“Anti-Zionist Jews, as conscientious objectors, deserve the right to be exempt from service in the Israeli army, as set down in UN Commission on Human Rights resolution 1998/77.

“These violations of Torah and oppression of its followers are only another proof that the State of Israel does not represent the Jewish religion or the Jewish people.”

CLEARWATER, FL, US, June 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — On June 26th leaders of Tampa Bay nonprofit organizations will gather at the Clearwater Community Volunteers (CCV) Center for a monthly Non-Profit Networking Luncheon. At the luncheon Mr. Terry Hitchcock will deliver a short talk about how to inspire others to contribute to their causes. Nonprofits can RSVP by contacting the CCV Center directly. There is no cost to attend.

Terry Hitchcock has been an inspirational speaker for over 10 years, and is a recipient of the Distinguished Medal of Merit from President Reagan, one of the highest civilian decorations available in the United States. In 1996, Terry Hitchcock gained the national spotlight for running the equivalent of 75 marathons in 75 days from Minneapolis to Atlanta. He offered to speak at the luncheon as his way of giving back to the community.

“The networking luncheon was created to assist nonprofits to get the tools they need, like learning how to recruit more volunteers and enabling them to network within their social betterment campaigns.” said Clemence Chevrot, Director of the CCV Center.

The luncheon will begin with a short reception followed by a buffet lunch with a variety of items to choose from.

“Nonprofit leaders are the people who have the personal conviction to tackle the various ills in our society today” said Michael Soltero, Manager of the CCV Center. “Being able to inspire others is the trademark of a leader – and this is why we invited Mr. Hitchcock to deliver this seminar, he is a man of many accomplishments. Humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard wrote ‘the first test any follower of a leader requires the leaders to meet is competence,’ and Mr. Hitchcock exemplifies this.”

Topics previously discussed at the CCV Charity networking luncheon are all targeted towards the different aspects of running a successful nonprofit. Among the list of subjects covered have been public speaking, photography and even going viral on social media.

Since March of 2018 the CCV Center has offered its facilities as a meeting space or event venue at no cost to nonprofit organizations. Made possible with sponsorship from the Church of Scientology, it serves to expand the Clearwater Community Volunteers’ community outreach.

Clearwater Center Helps Community Celebrate Father’s Day

Our fathers have a big influence on us during our upbringing. We wanted dads to be recognized for helping to shape our society’s next generation into responsible citizens.”

— Michael Soltero, CCV Center Manager

CLEARWATER, FL, US, June 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — On Saturday, June 15th, 89 fathers and their families converged on the Clearwater Community Volunteers Center and Way to Happiness Center in downtown Clearwater. Themed around the Way to Happiness precept “Honor and Help Your Parents”, children learned why they should honor their fathers, and participated in a myriad of outdoor activities with their dads.

The event began in the Way to Happiness Center with Steve Gill, professional cartoonist, who drew cartoons for the families at reception. He created cartoon animals and objects at the request of the children.

Ivan Batalla, Manager of The Way to Happiness Center, showed chapter 5 – “Honor and Help your Parents” from the Way to Happiness Book on Film. Several kids were invited to say what they liked most about their dad.

“I like that my daddy helps me with my homework.” said one of the kids. “I like that he comes home and plays with me!” said another.

Refreshments were served up in the CCV Center, including empanadas, gourmet sandwiches, a sundae bar and Fathers Day themed cupcakes. The families then crossed the street to the Osceola Courtyard where the kids scrambled to get in line for face painting, crafting their own “pet rock” and taking a picture with their dad at the “I Love You Dad” photo station.

The families participated in competitions like a water balloon toss, sack race and a dad-only watermelon eating contest. In each activity fathers united with their kids to try to overcome the other teams. After a hotly competitive set of sack races, one particularly speedy dad was dubbed “The World’s Fastest Dad”.

“Our fathers have a big influence on us during our upbringing,” said Michael Soltero, Manager of the CCV Center. “We wanted dads to be recognized for helping to shape our society’s next generation into responsible citizens. He brings to life what humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard wrote. ‘In this society and time, the family is the closest knit, self perpetuating, self-protecting unit. A culture will go by the boards if its basic building block, the family, is removed as a valid building block.’”

The event ended with the kids, dads and moms all engaged in a free-for-all water balloon fight between families to cool off in the summer heat.

The CCV Center and Way to Happiness Center are sponsored by the Church of Scientology. Their next community event will be the 4th of July Celebration in the CCV Center and Osceola Courtyard.
