Clearwater, FL, May 18, 2019 --( On Saturday May 11th, the Church of Scientology Flag Service Organization hosted the Third Annual Mother's Day Celebration for Stone Square Masonic Lodge No. 42 at downtown Clearwater’s Fort Harrison. Over 300 guests attended to pay homage to mothers who were recognized with roses and gifts upon arrival and non-stop tributes.

Brother Gerald Vickers, Past Master of Stone Square Masonic Lodge No. 42, then spoke about Mother’s Day as the day where we return all the love and help mothers give to their families.

Keynote speaker, Brother Johnny Simmons, highlighted the contribution of his mother in finding his vocation of helping others as a minister. As a result, he founded a youth ministry within his parents' ministry to provide counseling to youths in need.

Brother Bobby Byrd, current Worship Master of Masonic Lodge No 42 closed the presentation portion of event by thanking the Church of Scientology and the Fort Harrison for sponsoring their event. Finally, two members of the Masonic Lodge performed a set of popular songs that got attendees up on their feet in an impromptu dance set.

Brother Byrd said, “We are so thankful for the Church of Scientology’s support. I don’t know how we could have pulled off that event without their guidance, care and help. It is such a blessing to know that our partnership with you only grows stronger every year that passes.”

The Stone Square Masonic Lodge No. 42 is a voluntary, fraternal organization, composed of men of good will who seek to be of service to all mankind.

“Mothers play a valuable role in our upbringing and they should reap the rewards for doing the impossible every day," said Clemence Chevrot, Director of the Clearwater Community Volunteers Center and co-organizer for the event.
