Neighbor Appreciation Day Project to Launch February 13

The Church of Scientology of Seattle invites all to join a community cleanup on Neighbor Appreciation Day.

The Church of Scientology of Washington State and the Seattle chapter of Way to Happiness Foundation are sponsoring a community cleanup Saturday, Feb. 13, in honor of Seattle’s annual Neighbor Appreciation Day.

According to, Neighbor Appreciation Day “began more than 20 years ago as a way to reach out, create new friends, and express thanks to our neighbors who make Seattle such a great place to live.” It was based on Phinney Ridge activist Judith Wood’s suggestion that the City designate “a special day to celebrate the goodness in those around us and to reach out and strengthen our bonds to each other.”

Anyone wishing to participate in Saturday’s cleanup should meet at Counterbalance Park on the corner of Roy St. and Queen Anne Ave. N. at 9 a.m. to pick up tools and get their assignments. The cleanup will continue until noon.

The Scientology religion was founded by author and philosopher L. Ron Hubbard. The first Church of Scientology was formed in Los Angeles in 1954 and the religion has expanded to more than 11,000 Churches, Missions and affiliated groups, with millions of members in 167 countries.
