Promoting Happiness and Community at the Kent International Festival

Volunteers with The Way to Happiness Foundation Northwest Chapter brought their message of happiness and a broader sense of community to the 16th Annual Kent International Festival

Seattle, Washington, United States, 29th Jun 2024 – Volunteers from the Northwest chapter of The Way to Happiness Foundation staffed a booth at the annual Kent International Festival. They brought the positive message of The Way to Happiness to local residents, business owners, and nonprofit organizations and highlighted ways to engage in worthwhile activities to promote a broader sense of community. The chapter is supported by the Church of Scientology Seattle.

Kent International Festival serves one of the nation’s most ethnically diverse communities. In the words of event organizers, “Through coming together and celebrating our various heritages with respect and understanding, we build a stronger and wider sense of community that is inclusive of all.”

The virtues of respecting and understanding others and engaging in productive and worthwhile activities are highlighted in The Way to Happiness, a common-sense guide to better living by author and humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard. The book contains 21 precepts that anyone can use.

Reflecting on what represents happiness, Mr. Hubbard wrote: “Happiness lies in engaging in worthwhile activities. But there is only one person who for certain can tell what will make one happy—oneself.”

One of the precepts of The Way to Happiness is to “Safeguard and improve your environment,” and volunteers had a display at their booth showcasing the Foundation’s extensive environmental work in Washington, from simple street clean-ups to graffiti removal and beautifying local parks. Recently, The Way to Happiness Foundation was awarded a certificate of appreciation for their 32 years of work with the City of Seattle’s Adopt-a-Street program through which families and communities come together to help create a more sustainable environment.

According to the City of Kent’s website, the city “is committed to a multi-faceted approach toward the protection and enhancement of local and regional natural resources” and Foundation volunteers encouraged all to get involved in simple projects to improve the environment in their area.
