Generations of Drug-Free Marshals Celebrate the Holiday Season

Two generations of Drug-Free Marshals sang Christmas Carols at the annual Drug-Free Marshals Christmas Festival at Yonge-Dundas Square in Toronto in December 2013.

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 24, 2013

The theme of the Drug-Free Marshals Christmas Festival at Yonge-Dundas Square in Toronto in December 2013 was: “Ask children if they want a drug-free community and they will tell you yes and why!”

A grassroots initiative established in 1993, the Drug-Free Marshals has grown to a global movement of kids telling other kids about the harmful effects of drugs.

This annual Drug-Free Marshals festival encourages kids to “Say No to Drugs, Say Yes to Life” with a seasonal celebration that includes hot chocolate, arts and crafts, and distribution of The Truth About Drugs educational booklets. Two generations of Drug-Free Marshals took the stage to entertain the crowd with Christmas carols. The event ended with a visit from Santa bringing toys for all the kids.

Scientologists on five continents work in their communities throughout the year to empower others with the facts about drugs. The Church and its members are dedicated to eradicating drug abuse through education.

It has been conclusively proven that when young people are provided with the truth about drugs—factual information on what drugs are and what they do—usage rates drop commensurately.

The Church of Scientology has published a brochure, Scientology: How We Help—The Truth About Drugs, Creating a Drug-Free World, to meet requests for more information about the drug education and prevention initiative it supports. To learn more or read the brochure, visit the Scientology website.

Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard wrote, “The planet has hit a barrier which prevents any widespread social progress—drugs and other biochemical substances. These can put people into a condition which not only prohibits and destroys physical health but which can prevent any stable advancement in mental or spiritual well-being.”

Celebrate Valentine?s Day with Vow Renewals in Hawaii and Fiji

Celebrate Valentine’s Day with Vow Renewals in Hawaii and Fiji

Outrigger Hotels Complimentary Vow Renewal

Waikiki, Honolulu, Hawaii (PRWEB) December 23, 2013

Outrigger Hotels and Resorts is making Valentine’s Day even sweeter this year by offering lovebirds two romantic Valentines offers at two romantic Outrigger destinations. To make this Valentine’s Day extra special, couples staying at Outrigger Reef on the Beach or Outrigger Waikiki on the Beach in Hawaii can say “I do” once more along the Waikiki shore in a traditional Hawaiian vow renewal ceremony. For those looking to celebrate love in the beautiful South Pacific, Outrigger on the Lagoon. Fiji is offering a Vakavouvi Vows & Romance package. The lovely package will be offered throughout February to all couples near and far, and includes a vow renewal ceremony, romantic dinner for two and seven nights’ accommodation in a deluxe ocean view room.

“The iconic beach front locations of Outrigger Hotels and Resorts naturally provide a picture-perfect backdrop for romance,” said Bitsy Kelley, vice president of corporate communications for Outrigger Hotels and Resorts. “Our Valentine’s Day vow renewal offers are a truly unique way for couples to honor their love and celebrate their time together in paradise.”

In Hawaii, each island-inspired ceremony is conducted by a non-denominational Hawaiian officiant and features distinct Hawaiian cultural elements set to the backdrop of world-famous Waikiki Beach. The ceremony begins with a traditional Hawaiian welcome chant. Couples are then treated to a graceful hula and serenaded with Hawaiian music before being blessed with a gentle sprinkling of sea water and reciting vows in the Hawaiian language. The ceremony concludes with a performance of the beautiful Hawaiian Wedding Song, accompanied by a hula. A complimentary photo and commemorative certificate are presented to each couple at the conclusion of the ceremony to remember the day.

The Valentine’s Day program will begin at 7:30 a.m. on February 14, 2014, at the Outrigger Reef on the Beach. The Hawaiian ceremony is open to guests of both the Outrigger Reef on the Beach and the Outrigger Waikiki on the Beach. Couples must sign up at their respective hotel’s concierge desk prior to the ceremony to make a reservation.

Room rates during this popular time period start from $ 275per night at the Outrigger Reef on the Beach and $ 309 per night at the Outrigger Waikiki on the Beach. Bookings can be made by calling your preferred travel partner or Outrigger Hotels and Resorts at 1-800-688-7444 or by visiting http://www.outrigger.com.

Guests looking to renew their love in Fiji are in luck this February—the Vakavouvi Vows & Romance package includes seven nights’ accommodation in a deluxe ocean view room complete with Talai Butler service and a two-course dinner for two at the resort’s award-winning, signature Ivi restaurant, including a bottle of wine to mark the occasion.

The highlight of the package is a renewal of vows ceremony performed by a personalized coordinator, church minister or celebrant with serenaders, floral arrangements, traditional Fijian decorations and a celebration cake included. The ceremony can take place in any one of several stunning property locations including the chapel, gardens or right on the beach.

The Vakavoui Vows & Romance package rate starts from USD $ 1700* (FJD $ 3200) for two. Bookings for the package can be made up to January 31, 2014 by visiting the resort’s website at http://www.outriggerfiji.com/ForLove.
