Scientology Celebrity Centre of Nashville Joins the Great American Cleanup

Nashville—Last Thursday members of the Church of Scientology Celebrity Centre of Nashville got down and dirty downtown to clean up the banks of the historic Cumberland River.

The state spends 11 million dollars of taxpayer money annually picking up trash Tennessee litterbugs leave behind.  Members of the Church of Scientology Celebrity Centre joined thousands of other Music City volunteers to do something effective and upgrade the image of their city.

“We think it is very important to join community efforts to make sure Nashville is a nice place to live,” said Julie Forney, spokesperson for the Scientology Celebrity Centre.  “L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of the Scientology religion, emphasized the importance of safeguarding and improving the environment.  Scientologists take this to heart and we are proud to be part of this program.”

This year Nashville is one of three cities chosen to showcase the Keep America Beautiful project, a volunteer-based community action and education organization whose mission is to engage individuals to take greater responsibility for improving their community environments. More than 1.5 million Tennessee volunteers participated in Keep America Beautiful’s Great American Cleanup last year, making the program one of the largest community activities in the state.
