Even a torrential rainstorm just before the fireworks could not put a damper on an evening of friendship, food and celebration of the fabulous 4th at the Church of Scientologyâ€™s Oak Cove Hotel.
Online PR News – 11-July-2013 – Clearwater FL – The Church of Scientology, Flag, opened the doors of the Oak Cove Hotel this 4th of July for a celebration with neighbors and friends. Nearly 70 guests assembled in the Terrace Restaurant for a special Golden Age Theater presentation, food by award-winning chefs and a share in Clearwaterâ€™s spectacular waterfront fireworks display.
The event had a summer camp theme and guests were encouraged to make their own sâ€™mores and trail mix. Guests ate outside on two terraces that overlook the Memorial Causeway Bridge and the waterfront.
The July 4th party was a casual yet elegant evening. The traditional American fare, such as burgers and hot dogs, was served alongside such treats as watermelon-basil soup and jicama-slaw.
Right at the end of the meal, the clouds poured down a heavy summer rain, which brought the guests back indoors for that eveningâ€™s entertainment: the East Coast Golden Age Theaterâ€™s performance of the comic cowboy tale â€śThe Ghost Town Gun-Ghost,â€ť by L. Ron Hubbard.
This dramatic reading starred Joanie Sigal, Colin Taufer and Eric Cefail and was accompanied by music and sound effects reminiscent of an old-time radio show. Also acting in the performance were Dylan Cefail, Bridget Haggerty, Nick Hill and Aleandro Licea, who filled in roles as diverse as a Native American Indian Chief to a blood-thirsty Sheriff.
The guests were then invited to the Oak Cove Penthouse to view the Clearwater City fireworks, which were breathtaking.
â€śIt was a very nice evening to connect with neighbors and celebrate the freedoms that our Founding Fathers postulated for us so long ago,â€ť said Pat Harney, the Public Affairs Director for the Church.
â€śAs a native Jamaican and a now naturalized American citizen, the Fourth of July signifies a time for me when all those born or living in America give thanks for the hard-won freedoms that gave birth to this great nation,â€ť Harney added.
This is the third year in a row that the Church has had an event of this nature.
