Sunday, June 28th in Poggio San Romualdo Narconon Astore celebrated its twenty-first anniversary of helping addicts recover from addiction. People traveled from around the country join the celebration which included staff, students, graduates, families, and friends.
The theme for the event was “rebirth”. A few of the students currently on the program planted a small fruit tree along the avenue leading to the center, as a symbol of rebirth and a new life free from drugs. In addition, along this same avenue a plaque was placed dedicated to L. Ron Hubbard, whose works are the basis for the Narconon program which have helped so many people over the years.
Following these activities the attendees gathered in the main hall, where approximately thirty graduates from 1985 to today shared their success and briefly described their new life after rehabilitation.
Parents were presented with certificates for completing a parents course while their son or daughter completed their Narconon program and all of these parents were very appreciative and gave thanks to Narconon Astore for the help they and their children had received.
The party concluded with entertainment provided by former student who sang and played guitar, along with refreshments and a beautiful cake served to all guests.
